    phpMyAdmin error: cannot load mysql extension

    Hi all!

    I installed php and mysql with IIS. I also installed my phpMyAdmin. I'm getting an error that says "Cannot load mysql extensions".

    I have tried everything I have researched to solve this problem--

    Changed all of the "\" to "/"
    Removed the ";" from the extension files associated with mysql.
    Changed extension_dir to extension_dir = "E:/php/ext"
    Restarted IIS and the computer itself.

    I'm stumped.

    I attached a screencap of the phpMyAdmin page error I'm getting.

    TIA!

    Looks like your missing some extensions, do you have a info.php file? should be with phpMyAdmin I think.

    If not just create this simple file and navigate to it.

    PHP Code:
    <?php

    phpinfo
    ();

    ?>
    save is as something like info.php

    Open it up and look for the MySQl extension listed, if it's not listed you need to look in the php.ini file for something like:

    Code:
    ;extension=mysql
    to un-comment this remove the ;

    Code:
    extension=mysql
    Looks like you also need the extension mcrypt.

    After you make each change you need to restart apache as well.

    Also double check to see if MySQL server is running

    This might have some other info to point you in the right direction, Link

    I checked the info.php file and mysql is listed there.
    I am not running an Apache server. Just IIS
    MySQL is running.
