Hello

I am trying to get phpmyadmin working on windows 7 with IIS

I have unzipped PHP5 to C:\PHP and uncommented the following lines in the php.ini file:

extension=php_mysqli.dll
extension=php_mbstring

I have also added the location of the extension files to the php.ini file

I get the following error when going to localhost\phpmyadmin:


Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration. - Documentation

I have also copied the php.ini file to the Windows directory and PHP works as a phpinfo page loads correctly under localhost

Any ideas?

phpMyAdmin uses mysql by default. you have to change its config to use mysqli.

Seemed to have fixed it, gave the built in IIS windows account full control over the inetpub folder and subfolder and it worked ok

Cheers
