I have been trying to get a php, mySQL install to work and talk
together on Windows XP SP2 with IIS. So far I installed and received a
responce from php(V5 - manual install) though the
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
command which prints out the current settings of the php install.
I then installed mySQL complete setup (V5) and ran the server instance
config wizard. The, through the command line, set up a databse tables
that i required. In windows services mySQL is running however when
trying to use phpmyadmin i get the error "Cannot load mysql extension".
I have enabled the php_mysql.dll in the php.ini file and also, as
suggested in other posts, copied the libmysql.dll and php_mysql.dll to
both the system and system32 folders.
is this an issue with IIS and php 5 and mySQL 5 and should i uninstall
php 5 and use version 4 instead?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
Re: phpmyadmin error "Cannot load mysql extension"
No, php5 and mysql are friends.
You must have made a mistake elsewhere.
A few 'popular' mistakes:
1) Have a few php.ini's around and edit the wrong one.
Check: phpinfo() tells you which path it is using to load php.ini
2) Is mysql working allright?
Check: Can you connect to it from commandline.
3) Do NOT store your dll's everywhere.
Understand where they should be.
(Check in php.ini for extensiondir)
