Postby olaoyesunday » 31. October 2012 14:59

Dear all,
I'm trying to install module using XAMPP but I'm having issues with this three extensions:
1. ;extension=php_openssl.dll
2. extension=php_intl.dll
3. ;extension=php_curl.dll

I wouldn't know how to find these file in xampp phpp file for me to install them.
Anybody with useful information should help me.

A. Use phpinfo() to see what extensions are hard-linked and/or to XAMPP's PHP versions.

http://localhost/xampp/phpinfo.php

OpenSSL is now built into the Apache handler AFAIK. - it may need fixes to run right.

B. To search for Moodle fixes here use this URL - you will find a one or two of your issues were addressed.

search.php?keywords=Moodle&fid%5B0%5D=16

C. I have a Linux-only fix topic - Moodle will only run 'ON LINUX' with XAMPP/lampp 1.7.7 (or lower) I can't address the Windows version 1.8x fixes for Moodle at this point.

In your php folder, edit your php.ini and uncomment the extensions that you need. You will also need to pick a language for your intl:

[intl]
intl.default_locale = en_utf8
; This directive allows you to produce PHP errors when some error
; happens within intl functions. The value is the level of the error produced.
; Default is 0, which does not produce any errors.
intl.error_level = E_WARNING

I found a variant of this solution (for the php_intl.dll problem), where you don't need to copy all icu*46.dll files, but only three of them, in this article:
http://cynwong.com/blog/?p=446
As shown there, you need only to copy icudt46.dll , icuin46.dll and icuuc46.dll to apache/bin folder
When I copied all icu*46.dll files, the apache refused to work, in fact.
Another solution that solved the problem, without the need of copying this files to apache/bin, was adding the php path C:\Xampp\php to the system variable PATH, as suggested in:
http://docs.moodle.org/24/en/admin/environment/php_extension/intl
Note: I am using Xampp 1.8.1 where this problem, unfortunately, still remains.
