These are my specifications:
WordPress version: 2.7.1
IIS webserver: 5.1
I am trying to install wordpress on my local machine and everytime I go to
localhost/wp-admin/install.php I get the following error:
Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.
I have modified my wp-config according to the database created by me on.
I looked around allposts and found some of the common things mentioned. These are some of the things Ihave tried.
1. Removed the ; from extenion=php_mysql.dll and mysqli.dll in php.ini
2. Changed the extension_dir= (location where php is installed)
3.Made sure the IUSR_computername have permission for the php folder on my local drive
4.reinstalled wordpress couple of times
5.restarted IIS service at every step to make sure I am not missing anything
6.Made sure that the required mysql.dll amd mysqli.dll are present in php/ext folder
7.copied the libmsql.dll from \mysql\bin folder to \php
But still I get the same error
can anyone please let me knowif there is something I can do more
or can throw some more light on this.
