Cannot Load Mysql extension please check PHP configuration" --- phpMysqladmin ---cannot load mysql.so
Posted on 2004-09-08
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
Thanks for your time
