I am brand new to php and mysql. My company spends alot of money outsourcing simple projects that we should be able to do in house so I am trying to learn this application. I have downloaded the Foxserv AMP trio onto my machine and am working my way through a beginners guide. In this guide, the authors are suggesting that i test my mysql installation at the command prompt by looking for a sample db that was loaded in the installation process. i have copied the libmysql.dll file (originally called msql.dll) to the system32 folder. Now when i am at the command prompt and enter the following path: c:\foxser\mysql\examples\libmysqltest\mytest i am getting an error message that reads "The procedure entry point mysql_int could not be located in the dynamic link library libmysql.dll"

Can someone please set me straight?

Thank you

libmysql.dll is not msql.dll! Where did you find msql.dll and who told you to rename it to libmysql.dll? MySQL and MSQL are two totally different versions of SQL.
