mysql.dll won't load

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
The other day, I ended up having to reinstall XP from the metal
up, and thus also Apache (1.3.27), PHP (5.2.17), and MySQL (5.1)

For some reason PHP isn't loading some of the dlls.  Phpinfo
shows that it's loading my ini file and that extension_dir is
correct.  I have the dll entries uncommented in the ini file and
it appears to be loading bz2, gd, and zip, but not mcrypt, mhash,
mysql, pspell, or sockets.

I presume I'm forgetting something, but I can't imagine what it
might be, especially with such a funny pattern.  I don't see
anything in the install docs that ring a bell.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

I think all of these require external libraries.  Are those libraries
installed and available to the PHP process?

Thanks Jerry, that's what it was -- I hadn't reinstalled VC6 yet
since I'm not doing much C these days.  And since of course I
already had it installed when I started working with PHP, it
never crossed my mind that it was involved.

I think the dependencies should be more clearly spelled out,
especially for the sake of people who don't happen to own the
relevant compiler and therefore the libs.  I'm not sure I'd even
know where to begin looking, if I needed a free copy of the libs.

This is of course where a Linux style packaging system and open source
libraries really scores.

On the contrary, current chaos at least allows you to install any
arbitrary version of any arbitrary program without the need of upgrading
your complete operating system. Probably, perfection lies somewhere
