Ever since upgrading to PHP 5.3.8 our web server error logs contain the following error:

[11-Jan-2012 00:53:00] PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/' - / cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

I'm pretty sure this is harmless, but I'd like to know how to fix it.

Hi johnkyle,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. Typically this warning is due to a line of code in the php.ini file. You can simply comment that line of code out and it should not affect anything. Here's a tutorial on the issue:

Solve error message: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library

I hope this helps! Keep in mind, that I'd comment the line of code out and not delete it. That way, if there is a conflict that arises it's easily fixed by removing the comment so the line of code becomes active again.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
