I find this confusing because I have two dll libraries installed on my
Windows XAMP system:
I seem to be able to use functions from both of these libraries, so I
am confused as to what the PHP manual is saying.
Re: Need clarification of installing php_mysql.dll php_mysqli.dll simultaneously
They're the _extension DLLs_. The _client DLL_ is libmysql.dll, which will be
loaded by both.
On Windows it's basically a non-issue, since both will load the same
libmysql.dll (it would take some runtime fiddling with PATH or explict paths
compiled in to get one extension to load a different libmysql to the other).
On UNIX it may well be possible to statically link one extension against a
different MySQL client to the other, or even have both dynamically load
different ones - you'd still have to deliberately mess it up, but it's more
possible, hence the warning.
