Unable to load dynamic library

P: n/a
Hi there,

When I try to connect to mysql, I get:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in D:\www\kviz
\scripts\data_connect.php on line 3
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\PHP\ext
\php_mysql.dll' - The specified module could not be found. in Unknown on
line 0

BUT, the interesting thing is that in my C:\PHP\ext there exists
php_mysql.dll. Sooo, why can't PHP load it?

Hi Nikola,

Is libmysql.dll also in the searchpath? You could test if that's the
problem by copying libmysql.dll to the Windows folder and restart the
webserver.

HTH.

Ah, silly me, silly me... I removed it from path accidentaly when
experimenting... Thanks for reminding me of obvious :-)

I just worked through this problem. You can either add the
{your-php-path}/ext diretory to your PATH, or copy the
php_mysql.dll/php_mysqli.dll files to the Windows/System32 directory.
In either case, ** REBOOT ** This seems to be required.. as I
learned. Then all runs fine.. for either mysqli or mysql.
