error "cannot load MySQL extension, please check PHP Configu

Postby terrymod » 23. October 2010 18:26

Running Windows XP 3 on my laptop.

Have had xammp running for months

Learning PHP scripts and tried to turn on magic quotes in php.ini

MYSQLAdmin started error: error "cannot load MySQL extension, please check PHP Configuration".

I have checked all over for fix.

Ended up removing xammp , reinstalled xammp and
get same error

From the xammp control panel get same error : Cannot load mysqli extension. Please check your PHP configuration. - Documentation

Have tried stopping and restarting services, rebooting computer

Very Frustrated - any help greatly appreciated

Terry :cry:

Make sure you have the following uncommented or added in your php.ini

Code: Select all
extension=php_mysql.dll
extension=php_mysqli.dll
extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll


and make sure you turn off magic quotes because it been giving problems lately. Make sure the dll are also in the /xampp/php/ext/ folder or else that could be why your getting the errors
