PHP5, Windows Installer and MySQL

P: n/a

Does the Windows Installer version of PHP5 come with MySQL support? As
well, how hard is it to add extensions to the Windows Installer version?

i do not think php5 comes with mysql support by default. you can download a
file from php.net with all the extensions and set up extensions manually.
just read the installation notes and the ini file.

Sort of.

The default .exe installer or whatever does not have any of the extensions
in it. To get these:

1. download the php-5.0.2.zip file from php.net
2. unzip it to the location into which you installed PHP (I use c:\php)
3. edit php.ini (c:\windows on IIS, usually, c:\php on apache, usually)
and uncomment (remove the leading ; char):

extension=php_mysqli.php

4. Make sure that the extension directory in php.ini is set to

c:/php/ext or whatever directory yours would be.

good ruck!
