I have had a recent issue come up and after much digging through the mysql forums, have discovered that this has been going on for several Years ?
I am asking this forum whether thay have discovered the same issue and what work around they might have, to avoid not to having to reload the Apache package ?
The full error from the 'in process' shopping cart package, ZenCart, using IE 7's browser states; "Call to undefined function: mysql_connect(). Please install the MySQL Connector for PHP", further checking gave me "STATUS: MySQL database - Deactivated". When you try to go into MyPHPadmin through the browser, I get "Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration" ?
Specifications of the set-up;
XAMPP Control Panel Version 2.5 (9 May, 2007)
XAMPP for Windows Version 1.6.7
MySQL Server 5.00.56
The task panel Xampp Control Panel allows me to start and stop the sevices for MySQL, but I still continue to get the errors ?
Any suggestions as to'How to pull it back up, just short of reloading everything ? I have been following the "/custom" series for modifications, so all will not be lost, should I have to reload.
Thank you in advance.
