Tell me if I understand correctly.
In order to use MySQL, PHP must load the extension php_mysql.dll.
This file is located in the "ext" subdirectory one level down from the root of
the php install directory.
In order to load this file, the directory must be in the search path. On my computer, the
directory is d:\php\ext
If I see "d:\php\ext" in my search path ( I type "echo %PATH%" and
<Enter> at a command window prompt to see it.), then PHP should be able to load this
If all of these things are correct and yet PHP is not able to load MySQL, then I have a
serious problem with the PHP installation.
Given that I have yet to set up anything beyond basic installation, I have no great
investment in this configuration. Is it your recommendation that I uninstall all the
constituent pieces and start over?
