I have finally got round to installing mySQL and PHP on IIS (XP Pro)....and installed PHPmyAdmin to cover up all that I'm not sure about in regards to PHP and mySQL. Hopefully with being able to play around with it offline I can understand it all a little more closely and clearly....
On loading the index page of PHPmyAdmin I get this message
"Can not load iconv or recode extension needed for charset conversion, configure php to allow using these extensions or disable charset conversion in phpMyAdmin."
Me being me, I'm not sure where to start here. I will be using these lots of software for a while so I want to be comfortable with dipping into the settings and playing around etc etc....
So, the problem for now is the above.....any change someone has a pointer in the right direction? When I get PHPmyAdmin running I will at least be safe in the knowledge that a "bare bones" setup can be used before I start mucking things up :)
Help is much appreciated.
