Drupal requires mbstring disabled

Last Updated: Jun 09, 2014 06:16PM EDT
If you receive this error message when
attempting a new Drupal Install, there is a way to rectify the settings
so you can proceed with an install.



Error Message:



**Multibyte string input conversion in PHP is active and must be
disabled. Check the php.ini mbstring.http_input setting. Please refer
to the PHP mbstring documentation for more information.**



There are 2 different methods which you can use here.



1. Involves placing couple lines of code in your sites .htaccess file.



php_value mbstring.http_input pass

php_value mbstring.http_output pass



2. The second method is adding 2 lines of code into the
default.settings.php file, which is located in:
/hsphere/local/home/usernamehere/domain.com/sites/default/default.settings.php
on line number #254.



You will see settings like this in the default.settings.php file:



ini_set('session.gc_probability', 1);

ini_set('session.gc_divisor', 100);

ini_set('session.gc_maxlifetime', 200000);

ini_set('session.cookie_lifetime', 2000000);



You will want to place the code right under these ini_set variables to look like this:



ini_set('session.gc_probability', 1);

ini_set('session.gc_divisor', 100);

ini_set('session.gc_maxlifetime', 200000);

ini_set('session.cookie_lifetime', 2000000);

ini_set('mbstring.http_input', 'pass');

ini_set('mbstring.http_output', 'pass');
