I recently bought Build your own Database Driven Website using PHP an MYSQL (3RD EDITION0) . I went throught the instructions to load mysql and then PHP5. But wen I get to page 9, number 7 I get the following message.
php start up: unable to load dynamic library 'C:\PHP\ext\php_mysql.dll - The specified module could not be found.
Before this book I tried to install php4 with an installer included and then realised whe I bought this book I should use php5! I uninstalled php4 and then followed the instructions for mysql and then php5.
Thanks Ramiro Sfor suggestion. I will check it today as I uninstalled mysql and php yesterday and tried the 'xampp-win32-1.4.9-installer.exe' All in one package but that did not work either!!!!
My new question is since I have asp.net loaded on my system is this distrupting php and or mysql? If so is unistalling it the best way to get rid of it or di I need to reconfigure IIS after the unistalation of asp.net as well as maybe go into the registry and change something there?
Build your own Database Driven Website using PHP an MYSQL (3RD EDITION0).......When I get to page 9, number 7 I am no longer getting an error message so I guess that means that php is installed!?
On page 26 where I am shown how to do my first php script (todays date) is the next problem!! I get the following......
Today's Date in (according to this Web server)
Thats it.....I do not get the date displayed. why?
can someone recomend a book or some online tutorials that walk you through using php5, mysql, and dreamweaver mx?
when I type localhost in my explorer the page that loads is http://localhost/localstart.asp so the question asked before is still what I want to know...... Is asp.net conflicting with the php files and if so how do I alter it to stop? Is it a case of simply uninstalling asp.net or should I keep it there for some reason?
I can't wait to get statred learning php but all this is proving quite frustrating that I can't even start!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Many thanks to all who have helped and to this geat forum.
