I cannot get phpMyAdmin to work on my web server.
I have Server 2008 with IIS7, MySQL and PHP all working fine.
I have a few existing WordPress sites that are working fine, but I'm looking to add a few more and setup some database backup and maintenance procedures.

I've added a new site called phpMyAdmin, added the application pool.
Pointed it to the phpMyAdmin folder in inetpub and configured the config.inc.php file.

If I try to access http://localhost I get the following message:
phpMyAdmin - Error
The mysql extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration. <a href="Documentation.html#faqmysql" target="documentation"><img src="themes/dot.gif" title="Documentation" alt="Documentation" class="icon ic_b_help" /></a>


if I try to access http://localhost/phpinfo.php, the page is blank, but if I load phpinfo.php on one of the active websites, it loads and tells me all is well.

What have I missed or got wrong?
