Pre-install check, no database support

Postby LoomisIsGod » Tue Mar 06, 2012 11:08 pm

I followed a walkthrough for installing PHP, MySQL, and Apache. Everything seemed to be alright, and when I finally extracted Joomla to the proper directory I ran into an issue.

When it checks the pre-reqs, everything is fine except Database Support: () = NO.

I have connected to MySQL so it is up and running, but I don't know where to start and I haven't found anything documenting a fix for this problem.
