For some reason, my php extensions are enabled, but not loaded by my Apache 2.4 server. The extensions I am missing are mbstring and fileinfo. I did the installation manually and I wish to keep it that way, mostly for learning purposes.
When I say enabled, I mean that when I run php -m in cmd, the extensions are in the list
However, when I run <?php phpinfo(); from my server, these extensions are not in the list.
In my php.ini file, I have only configured the follwing (related to extensions):
extension_dir = "ext"
extension=mbstring (uncommented the line)
extension=fileinfo (uncommented the line)
