View Full Version : Help with WAMP and PHP Extensions

03-19-2010, 02:06 PM
Hi Guys,

I am running WAMP 2 and I wish to install php_pdf.dll extension to it but I have downloaded the extension and when I add it to where the extensions are it throws an error.

Can anybody guide me as to how to install this extension into WAMP2?

Any help would be great.

You can enable/disable extensions directly from the context menu.

First, delete the file or files you placed within the other extensions.

Then left-click on the WAMP toolbar icon -> `PHP` -> `PHP Extensions` -> `php_pdflib` (will probably need to scroll down a bit, it's alphabetized).

Hi kbluhm,

Thanks for the response.

However in the WAMP pop up thing where you can enable or disable extensions, pdflib isn't listed. I am running the latest version of WAMP.

Hmmm, I do have pdflib listed. If you're using the latest build then I'm not sure what to tell you without sitting down in front of your machine... good luck. ;)

From your WAMP root folder, browser to `.\bin\php\phpX.X.X\ext\` Where X.X.X is your currently active PHP version number. Is there a file called `php_pdflib.dll` in there?

The folder where the extensions are stored does not have the pdf_lib extension even in it.

Do you know where I could download the extension?

Also is there a specific way to install the extensions in WAMP or is it just drag and drop to the ext folder?

Hi Guys,

I guess nothing is available for pdf_lib on WAMP2. It must not be included in the version I am running. I have downloaded the extension from multiple sources, added it to the ext folder. It then shows up in the WAMP2 Ext list, but when you click to enable it it throws an error.

So never mind. I guess this is something I am going to have to do server side, and not locally. Just a bit of a ball ache when you use a local testing environment which then doesn't have what you need.

Cheers for your help though guys.

Hi everybody,

I installed WampServer 2.0 in my PC and I've installed php_cpdf.dll in path:

c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.0\ext. But the error message "PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.3.0/ext/php_cpdf.dll' - The specified module could no be found." is always appeared by initial startup WampServer.

I also confirmed the extension=php_cpdf.dll has added in php.ini

Please help me to solve this case asap.

Thank in advance.
