Support » Installing WordPress » Install question with SQL Server

  • Good morning,

    I am new to WordPress, and have a SQL Server 2008 back end with ASP.NET.

    I have php working, I installed all the bits, as far as I can tell with this so far.

    I have been following Install WordPress on SQL Server & WordPress – Getting Started guides so far.

    I got to the Install WordPress portion of setting up your wp-config.php file, and I hit:

    Your PHP installation appears to be missing all the database extensions (mysql, mysqli, mssql, sqlsrv, pdo) which are supported by WP Db Abstraction Plugin.

    Am I missing something?

  • valsedai, does wp and work together ?? Check this out first.
    I may be wrong here but you may have to get some interface working between them

    The problem is how you’ve installed PHP. PHP is really a godo base, but to work with databases (and a lot of other things) it needs the extensions installed as well as just the main PHP program.

    The error message tells you exactly what the problem is. You haven’t installed the extensions that are required for database access to be available.

    Unfortuantely installing the extensions is outside of my range of expertise, and I haven’t had to try to do anything like that on a Windows server before, but I’m sure that there will be a lot of resource saround if you search for them.

    Never used this before But you perhaps should try this
