I had a similar problem with PHP after I upgraded it. The location of 
the php extensions had changed, but my php.ini was still pointing to the 
old location of the modules. You may want to double check the path and 
make sure they're both the same. If not, I recommend copying in the new 
.default php.ini file and make your custom changes there, as there were 
recently many settings changed/added in the latest PHP version.
