[resolved] PHP 5, MySQL 5 and Apache 2 on Windows 2003 help (3 posts)

    I manually installed and configured PHP 5 and MySQL. I created a catalog called 'wordpress' (is a MySQL catalog a database in regular terms?).

    I've got PHP running fine on my apache server but I don't seem to be able to connect to the MySQL database. I receive the following error:

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

    I have enabled the PHP.ini extensions for PHP and libmysql.dll is in the same directory as php5apache2.dll.

    If I run phpinfo(INFO_MODULES); in a new PHP file, the only references to mysql are under Apache Environment (PATH). The list of modules jumps from libxml to odbc.

    I would hazard a guess that mysql support is not loaded - my understanding was that it's built-in?

    I found the problem. The extension directory was not defined.

    See http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/php/
