The 2.2.1 TS DLL file does not work with PHP 5.6.14 TS, or 5.5.12 TS on 64bit system.

The 2.1.0 TS DLL however works fine with both versions above on the same system... leading me to believe there is something wrong with the build for 2.2.1 on Windows systems.

Test script:
Try 2.2.1 TS DLL on 5.6.14 TS PHP. PHPINFO() will not load SOLR.
Try 2.1.0 TS DLL on 5.6.14 TS PHP. PHPINFO() will load SOLR.

Can you please post any errors from your logs that can hint why it failed loading,  if not then it will be next to impossible to debug, thanks

Tested some more... it seems it loads on command line, but not when loaded with Apache server.

Running php -i from command line returns:

Solr Support => enabled
Version => 2.2.1
Last Build Date => Sep 27 2015
Last Build Time => 19:40:48

However, Solr entry is missing in Apache servers phpinfo();

Apache PHP error log is quite generic (despite file existing in location).

Tried a non-wamp install of Apache/PHP; same problem.

Thanks for the report. ext/solr has several dependencies, all of them should be contained in the PHP root dir. Please ensure it's on the %path% before starting Apache. When in doubt, you can always check which DLLs are loaded/required with the Process Monitor tool from

Indeed, once adding PHP folder to windows PATH; works as expected.
Seems like this is required since version 2.2.
