    Please Help

    Hi guys

    I have recently installed Apache/php/phpMyAdmin and MySQL on windows xp pro system

    All seems to work apart from MYSQL

    I am a complete newbie to server side dev so maybe i am missing something simple but it is driving me mad.

    I can find apache happily at localhost - php files are working but when I go to phpMyAdmin I get:

    cannot load MySQL extension,
    please check PHP Configuration

    I have installed the MySQL version : mysql-3.23.57-win at c:/mysql, and i get the trafic sign icon with green light on my task bar, I have also downloaded the MyODBC driver but hasn't helped.

    It is as if everything is installed and no errors but apache/phpMyadmin just isn't seeing MySQL.

    The Mysql documentation is a nightmare - I am completely lost.

    Any ideas?

    If PHP is working with your server then it must be a red herring.
