Hey folks I am currently doing some work on PhP that requires me to parse a YAML file by using the
function. I am still new to the language and all so when I tried using that function on my unmodified XAMPP server on Windows I got the error 'function not found'. After some research I found out that you are actually supposed to install extensions on your php installation to be able to use that function. http://php.net/manual/en/yaml.setup.php
this link details the installation process and I have read through it however I am confused in regards to the installation procedure. The above link states that there is not a DLL package available for download however a comment direct to this link http://pecl.php.net/package/yaml
where you can clearly see a DLL Package for YAML Parser. My question is if you could please walk me through how to go about this installation procedure on a Windows Machine using XAMPP.
this link might offer you more insight on this topic although I fail to understand how it all works :(
Edit2: I have tried to download the DLL given on the above link and add it to my php/ext folder and add an entry in php.ini
but when I try to test if my extension has been loaded by the following script, I get an error.
echo "yaml loaded :)";
echo "something is wrong :(";
