Hello,

You can enable mbstring module using the cPanel script /scripts/easyapache.

You can also use WHM for this purpose.

1. Login to WHM as Root
2. Go to "Software" and click "Update Apache" chose what you want install.
3. Make sure you have checked and unchecked what you want and don't want.
4. Click Build

DLLs are Dynamic Linked Libraries, and they are only applicable to Windows. DLLs are not valid on Linux/Unix servers.

What cPtechie told you is valid, but I wanted to add that mbstring will be listed in Step #6 of EasyApache, Exhaustive Options List.

I also wanted to mention that in the php.ini file, there are mentions of several DLLs, with directives to load them that are commented out. These should be left commented out. The default php.ini file applies to both Windows and *nix, and the Windows-specific portions should be left commented out. I mention this because I have seen users try to uncomment the lines referencing DLLs, and then become confused when this does not work and causes error messages. References to DLLs in the php.ini file should be left alone; the correct way to add PHP extensions on a cPanel server is to use EasyApache.
