I am having an issue getting MySQL and PHP to work together.  I receive and error:
Call to undefined function mysql_connect()
Here is the Environment:
Intel Box running Windows 2003 Standard Server w/ .netFramework 2.0
IIS 6
PHP 5.1.4 (this has been tested on this environment and works)
MySQL 5.0.22 (installed and I can use the database through the mysql command line)
I have mysql in the environment path and I have uncommented out the extensions and the extensions directory is configured in the php.ini file.  I know php.ini is being read as I can execute PHP scripts.

The error message is generated during a post nuke install.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Have you added the mysql dll to the php folder and included it in the php configuration file - it is not active by default so you need to find it and activate it to be able to connect to mysql - by the way i would use mysqli if possible - it seems to be much more consistant

Thank you for the quick response.  

I have the extension directory in the windows environment path as well as the full path listed to the php.ini.  I also tested w/ that dll in the php directory in the php root directory, as you suggested.  
Still generates the same error.  For whatever reason, it acts as if the extension is not being loaded.  Could I have missed something in the IIS setup?
Thanks.

Silly question, but is PHP running as an ISAPI module and if so, did you restart IIS after changing the config?

Not a silly question, I have bitten myself before on that type of problem.  Yes it is an ISAPI module and yes I have restarted IIS as well as restarting the computer system/server itself.  I get the error running a post nuke install.  Is it possible that mysql is actually working, but for whatever reason the post nuke install is failing?  Is there an info check that can be run or perhaps a page of php code I can run that would test it.  I can also post the php.ini if that helps.
Thanks to all.

Sorry for the delay.

Here is the PHP.INI file.

[PHP]

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About php.ini   ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior.  In order for PHP to
; read it, it must be named 'php.ini'.  PHP looks for it in the current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory.  The
; path in which the php.ini file is looked for can be overridden using
; the -c argument in command line mode.
;
; The syntax of the file is extremely simple.  Whitespace and Lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future.
;
; Directives are specified using the following syntax:
; directive = value
; Directive names are *case sensitive* - foo=bar is different from FOO=bar.
;
; The value can be a string, a number, a PHP constant (e.g. E_ALL or M_PI), one
; of the INI constants (On, Off, True, False, Yes, No and None) or an expression
; (e.g. E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE), or a quoted string ("foo").
;
; Expressions in the INI file are limited to bitwise operators and parentheses:
; |        bitwise OR
; &        bitwise AND
; ~        bitwise NOT
; !        boolean NOT
;
; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
;
; An empty string can be denoted by simply not writing anything after the equal
; sign, or by using the None keyword:
;
;  foo =         ; sets foo to an empty string
;  foo = none    ; sets foo to an empty string
;  foo = "none"  ; sets foo to the string 'none'
;
; If you use constants in your value, and these constants belong to a
; dynamically loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend extension),
; you may only use these constants *after* the line that loads the extension.
;
;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About this file ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; This is the recommended, PHP 5-style version of the php.ini-dist file.  It
; sets some non standard settings, that make PHP more efficient, more secure,
; and encourage cleaner coding.
;
; The price is that with these settings, PHP may be incompatible with some
; applications, and sometimes, more difficult to develop with.  Using this
; file is warmly recommended for production sites.  As all of the changes from
; the standard settings are thoroughly documented, you can go over each one,
; and decide whether you want to use it or not.
;
; For general information about the php.ini file, please consult the php.ini-dist
; file, included in your PHP distribution.
;
; This file is different from the php.ini-dist file in the fact that it features
; different values for several directives, in order to improve performance, while
; possibly breaking compatibility with the standard out-of-the-box behavior of
; PHP.  Please make sure you read what's different, and modify your scripts
; accordingly, if you decide to use this file instead.
;
- register_globals = Off         [Security, Performance]
;     Global variables are no longer registered for input data (POST, GET, cookies,
;     environment and other server variables).  Instead of using $foo, you must use
;     you can use $_REQUEST["foo"] (includes any variable that arrives through the
;     request, namely, POST, GET and cookie variables), or use one of the specific
;     $_GET["foo"], $_POST["foo"], $_COOKIE["foo"] or $_FILES["foo"], depending
;     on where the input originates.  Also, you can look at the
;     import_request_variables() function.
;     Note that register_globals is going to be depracated (i.e., turned off by
;     default) in the next version of PHP, because it often leads to security bugs.
;     Read http://php.net/manual/en/security.registerglobals.php for further
;     information.
; - register_long_arrays = Off     [Performance]
;     Disables registration of the older (and deprecated) long predefined array
;     variables ($HTTP_*_VARS).  Instead, use the superglobals that were
;     introduced in PHP 4.1.0
; - display_errors = Off           [Security]
;     With this directive set to off, errors that occur during the execution of
;     scripts will no longer be displayed as a part of the script output, and thus,
;     will no longer be exposed to remote users.  With some errors, the error message
;     content may expose information about your script, web server, or database
;     server that may be exploitable for hacking.  Production sites should have this
;     directive set to off.
; - log_errors = On                [Security]
;     This directive complements the above one.  Any errors that occur during the
;     execution of your script will be logged (typically, to your server's error log,
;     but can be configured in several ways).  Along with setting display_errors to off,
;     this setup gives you the ability to fully understand what may have gone wrong,
;     without exposing any sensitive information to remote users.
; - output_buffering = 4096        [Performance]
;     Set a 4KB output buffer.  Enabling output buffering typically results in less
;     writes, and sometimes less packets sent on the wire, which can often lead to
;     better performance.  The gain this directive actually yields greatly depends
;     on which Web server you're working with, and what kind of scripts you're using.
; - register_argc_argv = Off       [Performance]
;     Disables registration of the somewhat redundant $argv and $argc global
;     variables.
; - magic_quotes_gpc = Off         [Performance]
;     Input data is no longer escaped with slashes so that it can be sent into
;     SQL databases without further manipulation.  Instead, you should use the
;     function addslashes() on each input element you wish to send to a database.
; - variables_order = "GPCS"       [Performance]
;     The environment variables are not hashed into the $_ENV.  To access
;     environment variables, you can use getenv() instead.
; - error_reporting = E_ALL        [Code Cleanliness, Security(?)]
;     By default, PHP surpresses errors of type E_NOTICE.  These error messages
;     are emitted for non-critical errors, but that could be a symptom of a bigger
;     problem.  Most notably, this will cause error messages about the use
;     of uninitialized variables to be displayed.
; - allow_call_time_pass_reference = Off     [Code cleanliness]
;     It's not possible to decide to force a variable to be passed by reference
;     when calling a function.  The PHP 4 style to do this is by making the
;     function require the relevant argument by reference.

; Allow the <? tag.  Otherwise, only <?php and <script> tags are recognized.
; NOTE: Using short tags should be avoided when developing applications or
; libraries that are meant for redistribution, or deployment on PHP
; servers which are not under your control, because short tags may not
; be supported on the target server. For portable, redistributable code,
; be sure not to use short tags.

; Enforce year 2000 compliance (will cause problems with non-compliant browsers)
y2k_compliance = On

; Output buffering allows you to send header lines (including cookies) even
; after you send body content, at the price of slowing PHP's output layer a
; bit.  You can enable output buffering during runtime by calling the output
; buffering functions.  You can also enable output buffering for all files by
; setting this directive to On.  If you wish to limit the size of the buffer
; to a certain size - you can use a maximum number of bytes instead of 'On', as
; a value for this directive (e.g., output_buffering=4096).
output_buffering = 4096

; You can redirect all of the output of your scripts to a function.  For
; example, if you set output_handler to "mb_output_handler", character
; encoding will be transparently converted to the specified encoding.
; Setting any output handler automatically turns on output buffering.
; Note: People who wrote portable scripts should not depend on this ini
;       directive. Instead, explicitly set the output handler using ob_start().
;       Using this ini directive may cause problems unless you know what script
;       is doing.
; Note: You cannot use both "mb_output_handler" with "ob_iconv_handler"
;       and you cannot use both "ob_gzhandler" and "zlib.output_compression".

;output_handler =

; Transparent output compression using the zlib library
; Valid values for this option are 'off', 'on', or a specific buffer size
; to be used for compression (default is 4KB)
; Note: Resulting chunk size may vary due to nature of compression. PHP
;       outputs chunks that are few hundreds bytes each as a result of
;       compression. If you prefer a larger chunk size for better
;       performance, enable output_buffering in addition.
; Note: You need to use zlib.output_handler instead of the standard
;       output_handler, or otherwise the output will be corrupted.

; implications and is generally recommended for debugging purposes only.

; declaration.  You're encouraged to try and turn this option Off and make
; sure your scripts work properly with it in order to ensure they will work

INI file looks ok,

I have always found that as an ISAPI module PHP is funny about DLL locations.
Try copying your php_mysql.dll & libmysql.dll into the same directory as php5isapi.dll (should be PHP root dir).

(Also check out: http://www.faqts.com/knowledge_base/view.phtml/aid/23162)

I have the exact same configuration that you have:

Windows Server 2003 Standard w/ .netFramework 2.0 and latest updates
IIS 6
PHP 5.1.4
MySQL 5.0.22

I've spent the last 3 full days trying to get this specific configuration to work too.  Last week I got everything to work using Windows XP SP2 w/ .netFramework 2.0.  This week I've been trying it on Windows Server 2003.  Many people in other forums suggest installing Apache, but why?  There's no reason why this can't work IIS 6.  Ditching to another web server is not a solution.

Today I was able to figure it out on Windows Server 2003.  The one major issue that I had to uncover was some obsure situation with how the mysql.dll and mysqli.dll files are created on mysql.com's website.  They used version 7 of Visual Studio to create the DLLs.  Netframework 2.0 is looking for DLLs created in version 8 or some weird garbage like that.  I don't understand it completely, but the solution is to copy the msvcr71.dll from your C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322 directory to your c:\php directory.  You can also find the file on the net if you Google it.  Interestingly, previous to this I was able to get the mysql.dll and mysqli.dll files loaded from the original PHP install files (without need the msvcr71.dll in the PHP directory), however, they are not 100% compatible (as is documented elsewhere).

Below are all the steps that I've documented for myself.  I'm going to format my hard drive and reinstall Windows Server 2003 Standard and then go through my steps to verify the procedure.  There are severals additional steps not listed below which I have to verify seperately, but I know for a fact the steps are a bare minimum to get things working.  Issues like granting the IUSER user permissions on the various web directories have not been verified yet.  Also, turning off Windows Server 2003's "Data Execution Prevention (DEP)" program may be a helping factor as well as a possible issue with the Windows Firewall.

Be sure to create the test.php file ahead of time too.  Here it goes:

======================================================
FILES TO HAVE ON HAND AND DIRECTORIES TO COPY THEM TO:
1.  MySQL Essentials
2.  PHP files (not the installer version)
3.  PHP MyAdmin
4.  MySql Administrator
5.  MySQL.dll (PHP download from MySql.com) (c:\php\ext directory)
6.  MySQLi.dll (PHP download from MySql.com) (c:\php\ext directory)
7.  libmysql.dll (PHP download from MySql.com) (c:\php directory)
8.  msvcr71.dll (copy from C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322 or Google it) (c:\php directory)
9.  test.php (create blank php file and type <?php phpinfo();?> then save) (C:\Inetpub\wwwroot directory)
======================================================

INSTALLATION STEPS:
1.  Install IIS (Add/Remove Windows Components)
2.  Unzip PHP files to C:\PHP directory
3.  Go to PHP directory and rename php.ini-recommended to php.ini
4.  Open php.ini
5.  Locate extension_dir = "./" and change to extension_dir = "c:\php\ext"
6.  Locate Dynamic Extensions section and remove semicolon before the following lines:
    ;extension=php_mbstring.dll
    ;extension=php_mysql.dll
7.  Add the following line in the Dynamic Extensions section:
    extension=php_mysqli.dll
8.  Save and close php.ini
9.  Copy php.ini to the c:\windows directory (Windows does not find it anywhere else even though the system path is specified in the next step)
10.  Add proper folders to the system path:
      a.  Start, right-click My Computer and select Properties
      b.  Click Advanced tab then click Environment Variables
      c.  Locate Path variable in the System Variables section
      d.  Click Edit and go to the end of the Variable value text box.
      e.  Add the following to the end and be sure to add the leading semicolon:
          ;c:\php;c:\php\ext
      f.  Close the dialog boxes.
11.  Open the IIS Manager
12.  Right click the Web Service Extensions folder and select "Add a new Web service extension..."
13.  Enter PHP ISAPI Extension for the Extension Name
14.  Click the Add button and enter c:\php\php5isapi.dll.  Click OK.
15.  Click once on "c:\php\php5isapi.dll" to highlight it and then click the check box next to "Set extension status to Allowed".  Click OK.
16.  Right-click the Web Sites folder and select Properties.
17.  Select the Home Directory tab and click the Configuration button.
18.  Click the Add button and enter c:\php\php5isapi.dll in the Executable field
19.  In the Extension field type .php

Excelent.  I will give this a try and follow up.  Part of my origional thought was a .dll version issue, but I was not able to track that thought down as well as you have.  Again thank you and I will follow up.

Actually, I went through and did a fresh installation today from scratch and came across a few minor issues with my previous steps.  Here are my revised steps.  Some are a change of order and some steps are further explained.

Here you go:

======================================================
FILES TO HAVE ON HAND AND DIRECTORIES TO COPY THEM TO:
1.  MySQL Essentials
2.  PHP files (not the installer version)
3.  PHP MyAdmin
4.  MySql Administrator
5.  MySQL.dll (PHP download from MySql.com) (c:\php\ext directory)
6.  MySQLi.dll (PHP download from MySql.com) (c:\php\ext directory)
7.  libmysql.dll (PHP download from MySql.com) (c:\php directory)
8.  msvcr71.dll (copy from C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322 or Google it) (c:\php directory)
9.  test.php (create blank php file and type <?php phpinfo();?> then save) (C:\Inetpub\wwwroot directory)
======================================================

INSTALLATION STEPS:
1.  Install IIS (Add/Remove Windows Components)
2.  Unzip PHP files to C:\PHP directory
3.  Go to PHP directory and rename php.ini-recommended to php.ini
4.  Open php.ini
5.  Locate extension_dir = "./" and change to extension_dir = "c:\php\ext"
6.  Locate Dynamic Extensions section and remove semicolon before the following lines:
    ;extension=php_mbstring.dll
    ;extension=php_mysql.dll
7.  Add the following line in the Dynamic Extensions section:
    extension=php_mysqli.dll
8.  Save and close php.ini
9.  Copy php.ini to the c:\windows directory (Windows does not find it anywhere else even though the system path is specified in the next step)
10.  Copy the MySQL.dll and MySQLi.dll files to the c:\php\ext directory.  Overwrite the existing files.
11.  Copy the libmysql.dll and msvcr71.dll files to the c:\php directory.  Overwrite the existing libmysql.dll file.
12.  Create the test.php file by creating a new text file.  Enter <?php phpinfo();?> on the top line and save it as test.php to the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot directory.
13.  Add proper folders to the system path:
      a.  Start, right-click My Computer and select Properties
      b.  Click Advanced tab then click Environment Variables
      c.  Locate Path variable in the System Variables section
      d.  Click Edit and go to the end of the Variable value text box.
      e.  Add the following to the end and be sure to add the leading semicolon:
          ;c:\php;c:\php\ext
      f.  Close the dialog boxes.
14.  Open the IIS Manager
15.  Right click the Web Service Extensions folder and select "Add a new Web service extension..."
16.  Enter PHP ISAPI Extension for the Extension Name
17.  Click the Add button and enter c:\php\php5isapi.dll.  Click OK.
18.  Click once on "c:\php\php5isapi.dll" to highlight it and then click the check box next to "Set extension status to Allowed".  Click OK.
19.  Right-click the Web Sites folder and select Properties.
20.  Select the Home Directory tab and click the Configuration button.
21.  Click the Add button and enter c:\php\php5isapi.dll in the Executable field
22.  In the Extension field type .php
23.  Click the radio button next to "Limit to:" and enter GET,POST,HEAD (no spaces).  Click OK twice.
24.  Click the Documents tab and click the Add button.
25.  Type index.php in the field and click OK.
26.  Select index.php in the list and click the Move Up button until it is at the top of the list.  Click OK. If an "Inheritance Overrides" dialog box appears, click the "Select All" button to highlight all of the child nodes and then click OK.
27.  Right-click the computer name in IIS Manager and choose "All Tasks" then "Restart IIS...".  Click OK on the "Stop/Start/Restart..." dialog box making sure "Restart IIS Services on (computername)" is selected.
28.  Close IIS Manager.
29.  Open Internet Explorer and visit http://localhost/test.php to ensure a PHP configuration screen appears.  Scroll down and make sure you see sections for MBSTRING, MYSQL, AND MYSQLI.  If you do not see these sections it means the DLLs are not being loaded correctly by PHP.  If you do see these sections, check to make sure the version information for MYSQL and MYSQLI all say 5.0.22 (PHPs original MYSQLI Client API header version will show 4.1.7 which is not 100% compatible).
30.  Run the MySQL Essentials installer file.
31.  Choose a Custom installation.  Change the installation folder to c:\mysql and install.
32.  Choose to Skip Sign-Up on the MySQL.com Sign-Up screen.
33.  Make sure the check box next to "Configure the MySQL Server now" is checked and click Finish.
34.  The MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard should appear.  Click Next.
35.  Choose a Standard Configuration and click Next.
36.  Check the boxes next to "Install As Windows Service", "Launch the MySQL Server automatically", and "Include Bin Directory in Windows PATH".  Make sure the drop down next to Service Name is set to MySQL.  Click Next.
37.  Enter a root password twice.  Leave "Enable root access from remote machines" unchecked.  Click Next.
38.  Click Execute.  After success click Finish to close the wizard.
39.  Unzip the PHPMyAdmin files to the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\phpmyadmin directory
40.  Open Internet Explorer and open http://localhost/phpmyadmin/scripts/setup.php.  Don't worry about the error message saying "Cannot load or save configuration" or "Not secure connection".
41.  Under the Servers section (top entry) click the Add button
42.  Enter the following information:
      Server hostname - "localhost"
      Server port - "3306"
      Server socket - leave blank
      Connection type = "TCPIP"
      PHP extension to use - "MySQLi"
      Compress connection - unchecked
      Authentication type - "Config"
      User for config auth - "root"
      Password for config auth - "same as MySQL installation"
      Only database to show - leave blank
      Verbose name of this server - leave blank
      phpMyAdmin control user - "root"
      phpMyAdmin control user password - "same as MySQL installation"
      phpMyAdmin database for advanced features - "phpmyadmin"
43.  Click the Add button.
44.  On the confirmation screen go down to the configuration section and click the download button.
45.  Save the file as config.inc.php to the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\phpmyadmin directory.  YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THE "SAVE AS TYPE" DROP DOWN TO "ALL FILES" otherwise Internet Explorer will save the file as config.inc.php.txt instead of just config.inc.php
46.  Open Internet Explorer and visit http://localhost/phpmyadmin.  If PHPMyAdmin appears with no errors it means that PHP and MySQL are working together on Windows Server 2003!

Good luck!
