phpMyAdmin - Error

Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration. - Documentation

Can any one tell me whats the problem? This in on Windows XP WAMP5

[quote=documentation information]
To connect to a MySQL server, PHP needs a set of MySQL functions called "MySQL extension". This extension may be part of the PHP distribution (compiled-in), otherwise it needs to be loaded dynamically. Its name is probably mysql.so or php_mysql.dll. phpMyAdmin tried to load the extension but failed.

Usually, the problem is solved by installing a software package called "PHP-MySQL" or something similar.
