So I've installed PHP v5.2.9 in order to run WordPress. When I go visit the domain, I get the following error:
"your php installation appears to be missing the mysql extension which is required by wordpress"
In my php.ini I have the following lines uncommented:
The extension_dir which I've double check that it actually exists is:
My php.ini is loaded from:
When I run
<? phpinfo() ?> in my test.php file everything is just as you see it above with the only exception being, MySQL or MySQLi aren't listed. Under "Additional Modules" there is nothing loaded.
I've read this post where the comments pretty much say the wrong php.ini file is being loaded/modified. This doesn't appear to be the case. I've editing the php.ini file located in the C:\WINDOWS\ directory. When I change the extension_dir and restart the server. the changes take affect. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is adding modules.
Just an FYI I'm running:
Windows Server 2003
And MySQL is in fact installed and works.
Thanks in advance for any help!
