on wamp
in php.ini
I uncommented
extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll
and restarted server


class Database extends PDO{
parent::__construct();
}


Class 'PDO' not found in C:\wamp\www\mvc\libs\Database.php



creating a class called PDO{}
fixes the error
but I want to call the real PDO

pdo_mysql is only the mysql-driver for pdo. You also need pdo itself.
Here on linux it is:
extension=pdo.so

You can use phpinfo(); to show which modules are activated.

i am using wamp

phpinfo()

cscript /nologo configure.js "--enable-snapshot-build" "--enable-debug-pack" "--with-snapshot-template=d:\php-sdk\snap_5_2\vc6\x86\template" "--with-php-build=d:\php-sdk\snap_5_2\vc6\x86\php_build" "--with-pdo-oci=D:\php-sdk\oracle\instantclient10\sdk,shared" "--with-oci8=D:\php-sdk\oracle\instantclient10\sdk,shared"



extension=php_pdo.dll
;extension=php_pdo_firebird.dll
;extension=php_pdo_mssql.dll
extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll
;extension=php_pdo_oci.dll
;extension=php_pdo_oci8.dll
;extension=php_pdo_odbc.dll
;extension=php_pdo_pgsql.dll
extension=php_pdo_sqlite.dll



does this mean that pdo is installed/enabled.

if you put phpinfo() in a file.php and open it in a browser, there should be a section called PDO, which says PDO support enabled.

I just installed a WAMPSERVER2.1 from http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php myself and started it. Without any changes to configuration, pdo was enabled by default, including pdo_mysql and pdo_sqlite.
So I started an up to date xampp for windows and there is pdo with mysql, odbc, sqlite and sqlite2 enabled by default.
Both have a phpinfo()-page by default in their config menu (tray icon with wampserver, http://localhost/xampp/ on the other).
