    Environment: Debian Sarge, installed with the HowToForge's instructions, ISPConfig, and the ISPConfig phpMyAdmin also installed.

    When going into phpMyAdmin, it gives me a red colored error message at the bottom of its index page saying:

    The mbstring PHP extension was not found and you seem to be using a multibyte charset. Without the mbstring extension phpMyAdmin is unable to split strings correctly and it may result in unexpected results.

    Hmm, red colored. Unexpected results. I don't think I'd like that. :eek:

    Doing a search through Debian's packages, I can't find an obvious PHP string library package. Debian's own phpMyAdmin package doesn't have any such dependency. Has anyone seen this; can someone fill me in?

    I dont think you will get any problems if you dont use 2 byte character locales. If you want to feix it you will have to change the compile options for PHP in the ispconfig installer.

    Nothing to worry about. :) (Unless you work with Chinese characters...)
