Hi Albrecht,

for localization and internalisation issues Mapbender needs the php
module mbstring enabled (--enable-mbstring). On Windows you should be
able to enable it be removing the comment of the appropriate dll in

In mapbender.conf you have a setting "portal function" (or something
like that), if that is set to false, users can't register themselves
at the login screen and you get the cited message.

HTH, Michael
