Mysqli class missing from PHP version 5+.

Recommended Posts



I am trying to connect to a database using mysqli from a web developing software package called Sellerdeck.


This software is purely windows based, it has PHP configured to a certain extent it seems.


I ran the phpinfo(); command and can't find anything to do with MYSQL in the settings of the version.



So i tried to download the php_mysql.dll  and libmysql.dll files, I have referenced them in the php.ini file  by using





(Also best to mention that "  extension_dir="./" "  was the only line of text in the php.ini file by default)


This didn't seem to make a difference at all, still get the same error.


Is there anything I can try to do? I really can't understand it as php 5 comes with mysql built in, but it seems that Sellerdeck have stripped that usability from the php version!



Any advice appreciated

Those files are for the old mysql extension. MySQLi requires the php_mysqli.dll extension to be enabled. You should not need to download the mysql extensions as they are bundled with PHP


I would suggest you add your PHP installation folder to the Windows PATH Environment Variable first and then configure the extensions_dir directive in the php.in to be an absolute path to the ext/ folder in your PHP installation folder.
