the MySQL adapter "mysql" is not available.

Postby Taurian » Fri May 29, 2009 10:34 pm

I've Read a variety of Topics on this issue all over the joomla forums already and still haven't had any luck. I would appreciate any help and this is certainly an issue I haven't encountered before... Strange..

Here is the issue:
http://66.232.103.66/trey/
the MySQL adapter "mysql" is not available.

My Php Info:
http://66.232.103.66/phpinfo.php

My PHP.ini is located in c:\php
Extensions are located in c:\php\ext
Some are in c:\Windows\system32

Environment Path:
C:\Perl\site\bin;C:\Perl\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\system32\WBEM;C:\Perl\bin\;C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\;C:\Program Files\Intel\DMIX;C:\PHP;C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0;

Reinstalled IIS
Reinstalled PHP
Searched Joomla Forums found a number of threads including
viewtopic.php?f=429&t=297163

And still no luck... I've attached a copy of the php.ini. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,

With WAMP MySQL is a service that needs to start. Can you check if that is actually running and if not what the errors are (there is a mysql log in c:\wamp)

I updated the db setting in the configuration.php from mysql to mysqli and that seemed to give it a ok work around. Still testing with it now.

Hi,

MySQLi is actually better, so if you do not need MySQL Id stick to that.
