"unable to load dynamic library'./php_mysql.dll'

I cant connect my DW to mysql since I installed IIS.
I also cant connect via straight code
I get this error:
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library './php_mysql.dll' - The specified module could not be found. in Unknown on line 0

Dont know why, BUT I have this error when I run phpinfo

"unable to load dynamic library'./php_mysql.dll'

Anyone have any ideas?  Thank you.

If you don't have a php_mysql.dll download the windows zip of PHP there you can find that dll and you can unzip it to your extension-folder

did you make the correct settings for the extension-dir in your php.ini (typical located in c:\winnt or c:\windows) The error look loke you set your extension_dir to ./ change it ot something like:
c:\php\extensions (path whete the php_mysql.dll) is located

thank you for your reply, but I have another question that has morphed into this one.
I dont have a php_mysql.dll file, I think that is one of the problems.
also, I dont have an extensions folder in my php directory?

thank you, got me on the right track, had to do that, plus a copy/paste libmysql.dll into system32 folder (it HAD to be the newest version from the package) then change the extension folder.

Thanks again.
