    Question How to install mbstring for PHP5?

    Hi guys,
    I'm using Apache2, MySQL5, and PHP5 with CentOS4.6, cPanel 11.
    When recompile Apache2 and PHP5 from WHM, there are no options for mbstring, so now my PHP5 doesn't has mbstring.

    I tried to install mbstring as below, but I got this message:
    root@mybox [~]# yum install php-mbstring
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    update 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
    base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
    addons 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
    extras 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Excluding Packages in global exclude list
    Finished
    Parsing package install arguments
    No Match for argument: php-mbstring
    Nothing to do
    I also tried:
    up2date -i php-mbstring
    but no luck!

    Are there other ways to install mbstring for PHP5?

    I didn't see that option. It just a short add-on list at PHP section.

    Should be like this:

    Select Profile --> Customize --> Select Apache Version --> Select PHP Version --> Exhaustive Options List --> Check "Mbstring"

    It should be under:

    PHP 5.2.5 (Be sure to "harden" your PHP since PHP has many security issues)

    Should work, I'm guessing you're still in the small menu because you didn't go to the exhaustive options list.

    login to your WHM >> EasyApache (Apache Update) >> Start customize based on your default profile >> Select Apache version >> Select PHP Version >> Select PHP Minor Version >> Select Short Option as per your needs >> Exhaustive Options List, there you will find "Mbstring" select that option(you can search by ctrl+F5 with Mbstring) >> start Rebuilding apache

    for XSL; from http://www.webhostingtalk.com/archiv.../t-565940.html

    - - -

    Edit /home/cpapachebuild/buildapache/buildscript
    There are about a dozen lines that start with ./configure and have all of the php options as listed in my original post. add --with-xsl to the end of all of them.
    Execute this -

    sh /home/cpapachebuild/buildapache/buildscript

    yaa this is the best way to configure XSL with the PHP. I did this many times without an error. Once the build will complete check the PHP modules by using the command

    php -m
