Installing: PHP Error: PHP installation appears to be missing MySQL
I am walking through the installation procedure.
PHP: 5.0.4 (just installed using windows installer, never used)
Created database and user for wordpress.
I’ve just created the wp-config.php file. The database and user are entered:
All else is default.
I’ve started the MySQL process from the command line (it’s not installed as a service as such. I can connect to it just fine from PERL:DBI local programs).
When I run install.php I get a message that says:
Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress.
I’m completely baffled.
I’m convinced from what I’ve read and seen that WordPress is the right technology for several projects I have coming up. But I can’t get a good install to do a proof of concept demonstration.
Any clues? Tips? Hunches?
Anybody ever see this before?
