PHP and MySQL connection

Postby Hunter » 29. January 2007 12:43

Hello. When I start xampp it looks like this:

the root is set to \xampp2\xampp\... so I´m affraid something is set to my \xampp\... folder. Have added "\xampp2" everywhere into the httpd.conf file.

And when trying to access my phpMyAdmin I´m getting: (copied my phpMyAdmin folder to my htdocs foler first)

"Cannot load MySQL extension, please check PHP Configuration".
1.20 I receive the error "cannot load MySQL extension, please check PHP Configuration".
To connect to a MySQL server, PHP needs a set of MySQL functions called "MySQL extension". This extension may be part of the PHP distribution (compiled-in), otherwise it needs to be loaded dynamically. Its name is probably or php_mysql.dll. phpMyAdmin tried to load the extension but failed.

Usually, the problem is solved by installing a software package called "PHP-MySQL" or something similar.

Tried to change the paths into my xampp2\xampp\php\php.cfg file but did not work out very whell. Any ideas how to remove the errors?
