    After upgrading to 1.4.4 the ChartDirector php extension is no longer detected by myDBR even though it still shows up in phpinfo. The chartDirector demos function properly as well. Tried restarting the server and no luck. Any reason I would suddenly stop recognizing it?

    In order to make the transition to PHP 5.3, the dynamic loading of the extensions is no longer supported. Make sure that your ChartDirector is correctly loaded in php.ini as an extension like this:


    You can see if the extension is correctly loaded by accessing

    The extenstion is now being recognized in the environment settings but when I run a report I am getting this error:

    Warning: main(lib/external/ChartDirector/phpchartdir.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mydbr_reporting/public_html/mydbr/lib/chart2.php on line 2

    Make sure the included file


    exists and that the web server is able to access the file. Also make sure that you have the latest version of ChartDirector installed.
