Mysql 4.3
Php 5.1
Apache 2
Win32 (xp pro)

I have changed my development server from Linux to win32 (yeah I know.. fool ah) as I need windows on there as my daughter needed a more powerful system to do stuff on. But I am SO close to putting Linux back on it as never had these hassles with Linux.

Anyhoo, Apache says it cannot load the module php_mysql.dll although it is in the same location as the other extensions I am using which do load with no errors.

I have it copied in so many places, Oh so many places.. windows sucks. hehe (frustration comment)
It is copied to:


There is nowhere else to load and still I get an error saying ' cannot load module php_mysql.php as the module cannot be found'

Anyone know why windows is so stupid and why apache will not load this module when it is in the same damn place as all the others.
If I cannot find a resolve for this I am going back to a decent OS (linux).

No worries now as I have gone back to Linux. Breath of fresh air this is!
How can people use windows anyway? Horrid system that is.. real horrid and restrictive.

Dicusses PhP mysql and apache on Win XP but it looks like in PHP5 in the php.ini file the line:


needs to be un-commented.

hope this helps

LOL.. I know it does or the error would not happen in the first place.
Ta anyway I have gone back to Linux and the daughter can go and buy her own system if she needs a more powerful one than she has access to now.
