Can't get mysql and PHP to play together on IIS
I have the school website (created with the joomla edugeek package) on my laptop which I want to move to the school's webserver. Yesterday was the first time I played with IIS so I have no idea what I am doing!
I managed to get php installed and can view a php info page on the server over the web. I managed to get mysql installed and confirmed this by installing the system tray app from the community site.
When I try to get phpmyadmin installed I get an error message telling me:
Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration.
The only fix I can find is to ensure that the extention=php_mysql.dll is uncommented in the php.ini file - which it is! Also the extension dir points to the correct place.
My head hurts.
(PS latest PHP and MySQL installers were used)
