When setting up my server I had similar problem, and I resolved it by adding
extension=php_mysqli.dll instead of extension=php_mysql.dll as php5 and MySQL5 use this instead, as mysqli i believe this to mean MySQL Improved and only works for later versions of PHP and MySQL.
You will also have to edit the MySQLi section of your php.ini file instead of the MySQL section:
; Maximum number of links. -1 means no limit.
mysqli.max_links = -1
; Default port number for mysqli_connect(). If unset, mysqli_connect() will use
; the $MYSQL_TCP_PORT or the mysql-tcp entry in /etc/services or the
; compile-time value defined MYSQL_PORT (in that order). Win32 will only look
; at MYSQL_PORT.
mysqli.default_port = 3306
; Default socket name for local MySQL connects. If empty, uses the built-in
; MySQL defaults.
; Default host for mysql_connect() (doesn't apply in safe mode).
mysqli.default_host = localhost
; Default user for mysql_connect() (doesn't apply in safe mode).
mysqli.default_user = root
; Default password for mysqli_connect() (doesn't apply in safe mode).
; Note that this is generally a *bad* idea to store passwords in this file.
; *Any* user with PHP access can run 'echo get_cfg_var("mysqli.default_pw")
; and reveal this password! And of course, any users with read access to this
; file will be able to reveal the password as well.
; Allow or prevent reconnect
mysqli.reconnect = Off
; Allow or prevent persistent links.
msql.allow_persistent = On
; Maximum number of persistent links. -1 means no limit.
msql.max_persistent = -1
; Maximum number of links (persistent+non persistent). -1 means no limit.
msql.max_links = -1
I hope this helps and solves your problem
My pain will be the pain my computer feels when it's a door stop....
