I just installed the Suite and I got this error and I'm unable to install php scripts.

***PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:/www/php5/ext/php_mysqli.dll - The specified module could not be found.***

(I do have this .dll in the /ext folder.)

Any suggestion on how to fix this problem are most welcome.  Thank you.

I've just installed the Suite and got the same problem.

Also when I test phpMyAdmin I get:

cannot load mysqli extension;
please check PHP configuration

Ok... the solution is here:

Put the libmysql.dll files in the windows/system32/ directory. That fixed everything for me.

Also/or add 'C:/www/php5/ext/' to the PATH.  Its set under php.ini, but on some systems, its not taken it.

Also make sure that C:\www\mysql\bin and C:\www\php5 have actually been set under the System PATH.

I just cannot seem to get my php and mysql to work.  Everytime I try to install.php it says my php version does not support mysql.  I'm using php 5.

I have read everything I can find but still can't get it configured correctly.

Edit php.ini (under C:\Windows\ or C:\WINNT\)
Uncomment line (remove ';')...

;extension=php_mysql.dll


Save file, restart system or stop/start Apache.

Thank you for your help.  I did what you advised but no luck.  I have tried b2evolution,wordpress & nucleus all of which give me errors that it does not appear you have mysql availble or that php is not config for mysql.

I uninstalled everything and used a different combination package that uses a GUI to manage SQL,PHP,Apache2 & more.  Took no time to install and was able to install Nucleus, Wordpress and B2Evolution in lest than a half an hour without any errors.

Thanks to everyone who tried to help.

Digby, I deleted three of your posts in three different threads today -- where you spammed an advertisment for another package.

In those threads, in which you claim how hard it is to "fix [our] coding errors" and how easy it was to install 18 other add-ons to the other package: the solution was as simple as to uncomment a line and reboot -- the problem was fixed.

I have had other instances were individuals, that were associated with other packages, would come here and posts false information and problems -- afterwards they would post links to another package, to take advantage of our search engine page rank.

I do not know your intensions, and perhaps you did have problems and are now happy running another package -- but please don't bring up two week old threads were the user thanks me for the help and for fixing the problem.

I'm sorry that you have had a problem connecting php and mysql with other apps.  But if you look around this forum, you will find that just about every user that posted a problem, had myself and others post/work to solve that problem -- as long as that user kept coming back -- and just about every problem was given a solution.

I think this suite needs a lot of work done to it.

Note from admin: that other package uses PHP4.4, we use PHP5 -- again the solution was a line change.

there is always a small price to pay from being on the bleading edge,

Although with about 3 minutes of tweaking, i found out i liked PHP5 more.

I guess it depends on the willlingness to have a look at the manual and in the config giles.
