i have successfully installed apache_2.2.4, mysql-essential-5.0.41 and php-5.2.3 under Windows XP system.

i have no problems executing php scripts etc. BUT when i run phpinfo() function there is no MYSQL mentioned at all. as the matter of fact i can't work with phpmyadmin (error: Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration) and so on.

any ideas how to link php and mysql together?

thanks a lot

since php5 mysql extension is not enabled by default.
so edit your php.ini to enable mysql extension.

You'll also need to set the extension directory directive correctly in your PHP configuration.

Here is another troubleshooting thread that might offer insight if that doesn't fix things for you ...
