I am about to install SilverStripe on a Windows 2000 server that already has Apache 2.2.14, PHP 5.2.11, and MySQL 5.0.51a installed and running. The installation instructions say the gd2, mysql, hash, and mbstring PHP modules must be loaded. Is it necessary to have the php_mhash.dll extension loaded or is it only necessary to have an MD5 or SHA-1 hash function selected?

Thanks ...

Hash isn't the same as mhash (which was removed in 5.3.0). Hash is part of the PHP core, so you should have it already. Build a quick phpinfo page and check for a section with "hash" as the header.
