"The mysql extension is missing" PHPMyAdmin and XAMPP 1.7.7

Postby yellek » 15. February 2012 04:37

I have a fresh install of XAMPP 1.7.7 on Windows 7 Enterprise and I receive the following error when trying to access PHPMyAdmin:

Code: Select all
The mysql extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration.

  • phpinfo() confirms that the loaded configuration file is C:\xampp\php\php.ini
  • in the php.ini referenced above the following extensions are loaded/not loaded (default as shipped):
    Code: Select all
    extension=php_mysql.dll
    ;extension=php_mysqli_mysqlnd.dll
    extension=php_mysqli.dll
    ;extension=php_pdo_mysql_mysqlnd.dll
    extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll
  • On the status screen the Mysql database shows as activated
  • Apache and MySql are started but not installed as services
  • there is no php.ini file in the Apache bin directory

Any ideas what might be happening?

The working default I have looks like this:

Code: Select all
;extension=php_mssql.dll
;extension=php_mysql_mysqlnd.dll
extension=php_mysql.dll
;extension=php_mysqli_mysqlnd.dll
extension=php_mysqli.dll


Good Luck
