Windows 2k3 IIS locks up with mysqli

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

Threaded View

I'm trying to get a web site working that needs php_mysqli.dll, and having
failed to get PHP5 to behave on Win 2k3, I rolled back to php 4.4
Thing is, if I enable the mysqli extension, the site will not load.
Without it, the site loads, but phpmyadmin forinstance, will not work.

No sign of any excessive loading on the server while the site is failing to
start up, but killing the php process off returns a CGI error almost

(I've been working with IIS /asp/perl sites for years, but never touched
php before)

Hmmm, I've installed PHP on your type of system several times and not
had a problem.

My first question would be - why are you installing PHP as a CGI?  The
ISAPI interface is cleaner.

Do you have the MySQL client libraries installed on the system and
available to the IIS user (both path and security)?

Anything in your event log?
