[solved]phpMyAdmin error:The MySQL extension is missing

Hi all,

Yesterday I decided to install Xampp 1.7.7 and dump my old installation. Everything seems to be working fine except for the fact that phpMyAdmin is giving me an error.

error: "The mysql extension is missing please check your...etc etc"

I've checked my php.ini over and over and it should be fine. The necessary lines are uncommented.
Code: Select all

The only thing I have changed in the default php.ini is "display_errors=Off"

I am running Xampp on Windows Vista Business sp1 64bit. UAC is disabled.

Really do not know how to tackle this problem, as far as I can see everything should be in order. I even installed Xampp 1.7.7 on old laptop running Windows XP. No problem there. phpMyAdmin works like a charm on the XP machine.

Does anybody have an idea how to solve this problem? I really need Xammp to work on my Vista machine(development). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Problem magically solved.

I changed the acces rights of the php/ext map and klabam! It works.
