“The program can’t start because php5ts.dll is missing from your computer” Error
I was trying to execute a PHP file via the command line on a windows machine and got the following error “the program can’t start because php5ts.dll is missing from your computer” Now executing PHP via the command line in Windows is different enough from Linux, I didn’t know what it needed. In Linux I would have install php-cli which should have come with all the dependancies. In Windows however, I fixed the issue by simply copying the php5ts.dll into the PHP folder. Now where did I get the php5ts.dll file? http://windows.php.net/download/ I downloaded the latest Thread Safe package, unzipped it and the php5ts.dll was present. This fixed the issue when executing the PHP file from the command line.
