Installation-ERROR: "Check that mbstring.func_overload is set to "0" in php.ini."


#1

Hello,

I have got a problem, installing PIWIK: At the installation-screen, the message

“The mbstring extension is required to handle multibyte characters in the User interface and API responses. Also please check that mbstring.func_overload is set to “0” in php.ini.”

is shown. But: I have configured the calue in my php.ini:


# vi /etc/php.ini:

.
.
; overload(replace) single byte functions by mbstring functions.
; mail(), ereg(), etc are overloaded by mb_send_mail(), mb_ereg(),
; etc. Possible values are 0,1,2,4 or combination of them.
; For example, 7 for overload everything.
; 0: No overload
; 1: Overload mail() function
; 2: Overload str*() functions
; 4: Overload ereg*() functions
; http://www.php.net/manual/en/mbstring.configuration.php#ini.mbstring.func-overload
mbstring.func_overload = 0

; enable strict encoding detection.
;mbstring.strict_detection = Off

; This directive specifies the regex pattern of content types for which mb_output_handler()
; is activated.
.
.


The command php --info shows the following:
