installation on windows 2003 with IIS


- latest XOOPS version (2.0.17)
- windows 2003 web edition service pack 1
- IIS 6.0
- MySQL 5.0.22
- php 5.2.0
- uncommented extension=php_mysql.dll in php.ini
- given write permission to mainfile.php

Failed the next step AFTER 'confirm database settings' with the following msg :

This page cannot be displayed due to an internal error.

You can provide the following information to the administrators of this site to help them solve the problem:

Error: MySQL extension not loaded

mysql is confirmed running, another php app is already using it.

pls help, at wits' end!

Re: installation on windows 2003 with IIS

Hi keebosh,

Did you restart IIS after uncommenting php_mysql.dll? To verify that the MySQL extension is actually loaded you can use the phpinfo function to output your PHP entironment details.

i.e. Place the following code in a file called something like info.php and put it in your XOOPS root directory;




Then access this file through a browser to get the details. e.g. http://example.com/info.php
