PHP / MySQL / WordPress not working (6 posts)

    Hello all,

    I'd appreciate some help with the following infamous error:

    "Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress."

    I'm running:

    WordPress 3.1
    PHP 5.3.5
    Apache 2.2 on Windows 7

    I have already:

    * Uncommented the relevant extensions in php.ini
    * Made sure the php directory is in the Windows path

    Any further suggestions for fixing it would be great.

    Thanks,

    LA

    Neither, as far as I know. I didn't know they existed until you mentioned them - I simply downloaded and installed the Windows binaries for Apache, then MySQL, then PHP.

    That did indeed seem to work just perfectly.

    Many, many thanks Samuel, you've really saved me a lot of frustration.
