Cannot set mbstring.func_overload via ini_set(), nor in htaccess

Reproduce code:
$result1 = ini_set('mbstring.func_overload', 2);  // false
$result2 = ini_get('mbstring.func_overload');     // 0 (should be 2)

Expected result:
$result2 should be 2 as a result of the previous ini_set().

Actual result:
ini_get() returns a result of 0 when it should be 2.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

The setting is PHP_INI_PERDIR which means in .htaccess or in php.ini, the .htaccess method works for me.

ini_set() will not work

mbstring.func_overload cannot be set in htaccess. See bug #49238
