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

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.

  • [list=1]
  • Left click on the wamp icon
  • Click PHP settings
  • Choose PHP extensions (it's at the bottom)
  • Then click php_mysql
  • Restart both wamp services

Hope this works. :)


To be a coder, you must learn how to think and not to give up so easily.
