StripeXS addon fails with white screen in WHMCS when viewing info

This usually means that the server doesn’t have the php-mbsting enabled.

When rebuilding Apache with Easy Apache, on step 6 (exhaustive options), scroll down and check php-mbstring.

Then let it compile as usual.

Mine had an alert near the end of the make process “No package php-mbstring available.
Error: Nothing to do”

However it fixed the problem!

Another way to enable php-mbsting is manually run in SSH shell as root:
“yum -y install php-mbstring”, then “service httpd restart”
Mine couldn’t find php-mbstring, but that’s probably just a matter of adding the right repository to yum.

In my phpinfo screen, my server now says this:

mbstring

Multibyte Support enabled
Multibyte string engine libmbfl
HTTP input encoding translation disabled

mbstring extension makes use of “streamable kanji code filter and converter”, which is distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1.
