I am trying to install a CMS which requires the mbstring module for PHP. According to that page, the module is installed but not activated by default. The article links to an install page which "explains" how to configure PHP. Unfortunately the install "manual" of PHP expects that you install Apache and PHP via source packages and compile them. So the other 95% of webserver admins do not get any help by this. I could not find anything senseful on how to enable modules without recompiling one's own PHP. Since I am using a very specific distribution with its own packages etc. I just can not compile anything myself.
So is there a way to enable modules (in this case mbstring) without that hassle?
Thanks in advance!
