Problem installing php with mysql etc

P: n/a
Hi everyone

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am trying to install ph
so that i can learn the code. So far i havent had any problem
installing apache. However when i try to get mysql to run wit
apache and php the windows services gives an error upon startin
apache. Something lik

error module not found. php_mysql.dll does not exist

The only problem is it does exist. I moved the file and changed th
paths to point to it but nothing seems to work. Im beginning t
think it is a Windows Services error and nothing to do with th
apache/php files. Can anyone help me?

Thanks, Nic

What version of PHP? Setting up the MySQL extension is different between PHP4
and PHP5.

If you're on PHP4, modify your PATH environment variable so it includes the
'dlls' directory in your PHP installation. For PHP5, include the PHP directory
itself, since those bundled support DLLs have moved up a directory level.

I stuggled with some components I downloaded too. Then I found EasyPHP:
http://www.easyphp.org/. Instantly after installing I had a PHP, Apache
and MySQL installation that all worked together and I could start
learning PHP immediately. Very reccomended.
