Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension…

  • I cannot get the 5 mintue install to work?

    I’ve spent over 5 hours!!!!, and still I’m going round in circles.

    Currently I have the following error…[quote]Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPres[/quote]

    I’ve edited the php.ini file and uncommented the extentions relating to mySQL then restarted my PC but still it won’t work.

    PHP is running fine and I can issue the PHPINFO() command and it works, I have installed mySQL v5.1 but cannot get wordpress 3.0.1 to install.

    What am I doing wrong?

    my Windows XP set up is….

    WordPress v3.0.1
    IIS v5.1
    mySQL Server v5.1
    PHP v5.2.14

    Your PC? So you’re using a XAMP type thing? Which one. And which directions did you follow for setting up a web server on your local PC?

    Nope; as I mentioned above, IIS 5.1 it comes with XP Pro.

    Microsoft.

    The webserver is running fine and PHP seems to be running fine also, it’s the PHP -> mySQL that seems to be the problem.
