I have just installed XAMPP version 1.6.8 on a new Windows XP Pro machine.
C:\xampp\apache\bin\php.ini includes these lines ( no preceding ;):
This is the php.ini files being used by Apache as reported by phpinfo()
The above .dll files are all in the C:\xampp\php\ext folder
I have set a password for the root user and updated the config.inc.php file to reflect the new password.
I can open phpmyadmin but I get the following error:
Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration.
On the status page, MySQL Database is shown as "deactivated".
I have searched for this error, but have only found the above solutions, none of which seem to apply to my situation.
Where am I going wrong?
Thanks for your help.
