    Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress.
    this is the message, but I'm sure I created the database...

    Yes but your host likely doesn't have the proper MySQL extensions configured for PHP.

    Talk to them.

    Note: if you are using GoDaddy, change to a PHP type account.

    How to upgrade your existing hosting plan with GoDaddy.
    1. Login to your account at http://www.godaddy.com
    2. Hover over Hosting & Servers, click on My Hosting Account
    3. Click on your domain name under the Hosting Account column
    4. On the right, click on Upgrade/Downgrade Hosting Plan
    5. Select the new plan. A plan with PHP is preferable, but a Deluxe Windows with CGI-b will also work.

    I Have The same Problem.
    I am trying to host my own Site Localy.

    I have Setup in this order: PHP5, MySQL5 and Apache Http Server 2.2.4 on Windows XP Pro.

    I know it is probably something i have done wrong. I have followed instructions and seam to be having problems accessing MySQL. I can access Mysql through MsDos but cant link anything to a database.

    I can run some PHP and Access Apache but nothing seams to work with MySql.

    Any help please
    Thanks
    Colin

    Hi MichaelH:

    A Deluxe Windows with CGI-b will also work? I am trying to solve this problem on GoDaddy, but can't find any reference to CGI-b. Could you elaborate? Thanks!
