I have a bit of an interesting problem concerning the configuration of php and mysql. I cannot configure them to work together. Whenever try to connect to a mysql database, I get the following error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql connect( ) .
I am currently using the latest version of mysql and php and am using a Windows 7 box as the server.
Due to certain restrictions, I cannot use a preconfigured web server or package (no xampp, apache or easyphp). Therefore, I am pretty much restricted to using the built-in development server that comes with php. So far, I have done the editing to the php.ini file, removed the semicolon from php_mysql.dll to remove the ; and changed extension_dir = "C:\PHP\ext" to reflect my extension folder.
I guess the two questions I have are:
A) can the php 5.4 included development server even connect to a mysql database
B) if so, can anyone provide me with some possible fixes to this configuration problem?
Any help given is appreciated.
