Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration -- and I have extension=mysql.so in php.ini

n00b setting up Centos 5.2 on localhost for testing.

I cannot get phpmyadmin to work.  The phpinfo() shows that I am editing the correct php.ini file.

thanks,
lou

; If you wish to have an extension loaded automatically, use the following
; syntax:
;
;   extension=modulename.extension
;
; For example:
;
extension=mysql.so
;
; Note that it should be the name of the module only; no directory information
; needs to go here.  Specify the location of the extension with the
; extension_dir directive above.
