Using Exif in PHP on Windows

I'm trying to use the exif functions in PHP on my Windows XP computer.  I want to read the meta data that is recorded by my digital camera (exif - exchangeable image file format).  I like the idea of storing that exif data in the database, so it's searchable. I wasn't having any luck with exif_read_data(), but finally found this posting.

You need to adjust your php.ini file.

Move extension=php_exif.dll below extension=php_mbstring.dll (which needs to be enabled too).  Your php.ini should look like this:

  1. ; Windows Extensions
  3. extension=php_mbstring.dll
  4. extension=php_exif.dll
