    Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration - phpmyadmin

    Hi

    I followed this Tutorial to install PHP on IIS - Installing PHP5 on Windows 2003 and IIS6 | PHP | Web Technologies- VideoTutorialZone.com

    I have download phpmyadmin, extracted the files from the ZIP and put them into the directory. When i go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin i get this error “Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration”

    I have tried googling this but the only answers i can find is for *nix and Apache not IIS.

    Please can someone help me i’m no good with IIS

    Top Result on google looks promising here.

    I think the gist of it is to make sure you have enabled MySQL support in php.ini.

    If you download the windows installer rather than the ZIP file package, it sets up IIS for you as part of the installation, and you can select what extensions you want at the same time. I found this the easiest way of getting PHP on IIS working properly.

    Other key thing to check is where your php.ini file is - sometimes you'll edit the file in c:\php but php is actually using the one in c:\windows. The phpinfo() function will tell you which you're using.
