Database Support

Problems with the Linux version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Database Support

Postby frozen11 » 09. April 2008 05:11

I'm trying to test a script out that I may use for my work and at the setup I'm getting the following message and I'm not sure on what I need to install or change for this to work proper.

At the moment I'm running Xampp on Kubuntu 7.10


Database Connectors

The next tests check for database support compiled with php. We use the ADODB database abstraction layer which comes with drivers for many databases. Consult the ADODB documentation for details.

For the moment only MySQL is fully supported, so you need to make sure it is available.

When I try to enable a extension I always getting a error that it can't find the file do I need to compile PHP myself for these files?

PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/opt/lampp/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/msql.so' - /opt/lampp/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/msql.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

Any help would be great!

Thanks

These extension are allread build into PHP and active. So you can't load them a second time as shared extension (which are not exists).

If they are built in then you would think I would be able to find these files on my system and when I search for them in LAMPP I see nothing for them the same goes for when I search my entire hard drive.

No. They are build in (into PHP) and not build as shared extensions. Only shared extensions you can find as "*.so" on your hd.

Alright I take it the site I was reading must have been refering to PHP4.

I've gotten closer to installing this application now. I can see my login screen and after that it's just grey.

Is SOAP preinstalled as well, If not is there a guide to how I can install on Xampp?

There is no difference between PHP4 and 5 and extensions. It's the choice of the admin if he want builf shared or buildin extensions. But maybe this site was not talking about XAMPP.

Sorry, don't know this. Just look in phpinfo() to know the answer.
