I am using php 7.0.2 on 64-bit windows. I checked my setting in php.ini file and can't seem to get this error gone. I am trying to access phpmyadmin and checked the config file in that as well and phpmyadmin says "mbstring error" message. Anyone have the same error message? Please help.

Good morning:

This should solve your issue:

Make the following changes to your php.ini file:

Change extension_dir = "ext" into extension_dir = "C:\php\ext" (please write your own full path for the extension directory)

Change ;extension=php_mbstring.dll into extension=php_mbstring.dll (delete the ";")

Then just save your the changes you just made in your php.ini file

Restart your Apache server
