I am trying to install phpMyadmin ..for using it as a client for my mysql database .I am doing this on Red hat Linux ,and PHP 4 and Mysql .

I am getting the following error
" Cannot Load Mysql extension please check PHP configuration"

When I see the documentation I see the below documentation
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"To connect to a MYSQL server PHP needs a set of Mysql fucntions called the "Mysql extension".This extension may be a part of the PHP distribution otherwise it needs to be laoded dynamically .Its name is probably mysql.so or php_mysql.dll .PhpMyadmin tried to load the extension but failed.

Usually the problem is solved by installing a sofware package called "PHP-MYSQL'" or something sililar

After installing PHP on Redhat, add the package it is asking for (PHP-MySQL), then edit the php.ini file (you will find it in /etc/php.ini). Scroll down to the "Dynamic Extensions" section and remove the semicolon beside the line: extension=mysql.so

After that restart the httpd service (service httpd restart) then try to install PHPMyAdmin again. This should make the installation complete without problems.

If you are having this problem in windows (unable to load Mysql extension) - do not forget that
the apache httpd.conf file has a variable for where php.ini is and for PHP5 is seems to default to
c:\PHP

If your php.ini file is in c:\winnt  then edit the C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\conf\httpd.conf   file

# configure the path to php.ini
PHPIniDir "C:/WINNT"


This solved that problem for me after I had done all the things most notes say to do ...
(like uncomment      
extension=php_mysql.dll    in  c:\winnt\php.ini
and set
; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "c:\php\ext"                 in  c:\winnt\php.ini
