OS windows Vista 64-bit
PHP version 5.2.5(x64)
Apache version 2.2.9(Win32)
Mysql version 2.0.67 (64-bit)

I have seen a couple of similar scenarios on this site but cannot find solution,
Apache is running fine,
Php is Fine
Mysql is Fine

but Mysql does not appear on phpinfo page?

PHP is in directory  C:/php/

I have added this to Apache httpd file.

LoadModule php5_module "C:/php/php5apache2_2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
# configure the path to php.ini
PHPIniDir "C:/php"

I have copies of php_mysql.dll and php_mysqli.dll in the php folder and "php/ext/" folder as well as in the "Windows/System32/"
I have added the PATH to php in the Environment Variables

PHP.ini has which is in  "c:/php/php.ini"
extension_dir = "C:\php\ext\"

and
extension=php_mysql.dll and

extension=php_mysqli.dll    uncommented

ANY help would be appreciated.
Daniel

You can tell from the number of responses that this is one of those posts that brings back painful memories to many of us.  I've gone into my setup and extracted paths and config items that you can use to compare to yours.  I'm running XP Pro, and MySQL 5.x.

Is there an exception in the firewall for MySQL Server?  Try turning off the firewall temporarily to see if that affects the problem in any way.

PATH (relevant fragments)
-------
PATH=C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin;C:\PHP;C:\PHP\ext;

PHP.ini file
------------
extension=php_mysql.dll   <-- Make sure uncommented

Is the php_mysql.dll file in the C:\PHP\ext folder?  I vaguely remember having to move it from somewhere else, like from the MySQL files folders to the PHP folders.

Sorry I can't be of more definitive help.  Let me know if any of this works.
