Where can I find MySQL 5.0.45 client API for Windows and PHP?

Posted on 2007-08-11

I have Windows 2003, IIS 6.0, PHP 2.2.2 and MySQL 5.0.45 installed. I'm installing a PHP application and I'm having problems. Even though the PHP application was able to create the database and tables it needed by itself, it says it cannot connect to the database server after it's installation. I know it can because it wouldn't have been able to create the database and tables. I looked at my phpinfo() and saw that my Windows box is running MySQL Client API version 5.0.37. Where can I find the client version of 5.0.45 because I think this is my problem?

    That's the whole download to the MySQL database. I'm looking for the DLL PHP connector for MySQL 5.0.45

    PHP 2?

    Erm. I think you need to revisit the version number.

    PHP 4,5 and 6 are around. PHP 2 (wasn't that called PHP/FI ? ) is ancient/museum.

    by:RQuadling for the full official releases of PHP. contains libraries required by PHP to use external things (mysqli for example).

    Though I think they are all part of the standard ZIP packages on downloads.php

    I had the same problem and solved it upgrading the libmysql.dll library.

    1. Rename the file libmysql.dll (located in the php install directory) to libmysql.dl_
    2. Copy the file libmySQL.dll from mysql bin directory to the php install directory.
    3. Restart the server
