That means that the php you have installed doesn't have the phpmysql modules installed.
See the PHP5 section under Windows here PHP: Installation - Manual
This is driving me insane! I have the task of installing PHP on a Windows 2003 Server with IIS. I have read quite a few tutorials and just keep getting the same result.
The error i keep getting is "Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect()"
I just cannot get PHP / MySql & IIS to work.
Does anyone know a tutorial that will work?
Are you using a PHP\MySQL (WAMP) package or just installing them as individual components?
Thanks for the reply. I am installing everything individually.
Did you install PHP via the zip package? If so, there should be a file called php_mysql.dll in the /ext directory. Make sure it is there, and if it isn't, I'd download the zip package and get the file from there.
Next open up your php.ini file and look for this line:
And remove the semicolon from the front:Code:;extension=php_mysql.dll
Also, I think you need to restart the web service for the above to take effect.
Thanks again for the replies. I have done all of that. I have enable mysql extension.
I always restart the service after making changes.
May have found the issue, but im just getting more confused! I set the ext direcectory to C:\php\ext in the php ini file. when i load up my phpinfo page it says the directory is C:\php5???
Firstly appologies with the delay in getting back to you. I have not set it up using CGI, i set it up using ISAPI.
Is CGI needed for Windows Server 2003? I set it up on an XP workstation and it worked perfectly.
Finally my PHP.ini file is in 'C:\Windows\'
no longer supported. However, if the ISAPI module is working perfectly for you then there is no reason to switch just yet. Don't even bother with CGI as it is a lot slower than FastCGI.
When installing PHP on Windows, I normally use the IIS Aid PHP installer since this sets everything up for you, so saves a bit of time.
Did you manage to get MySQL working in the end?
