Description DexPro 2005-05-08 03:21:35 UTC
Below is the error message which I recieved:

Checking environment...


      Warning: dl() [function.dl]: Not supported in multithreaded Web servers -
use extension=mysql.so in your php.ini in C:\Program Files\Apache
Group\Apache2\htdocs\wiki\install-utils.inc on line 17
      Could not load MySQL driver! Please compile php --with-mysql or install
the mysql.so module.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-05-08 03:44:37 UTC
Did you enable the MySQL module in your PHP installation? This is required.
Please see the PHP installation documentation that came with your copy of PHP.
Comment 2 DexPro 2005-05-08 04:27:25 UTC
I installed the manually PHP. NOw in all the instructions I went through the
guide and did not get any thing specific on that. Can you tell me where can I
find notes on that?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-05-08 04:33:25 UTC
Look under the heading 'Installation of extensions on Windows' in install.txt for directions.

The particular line you want to change in php.ini is:
extension=php_mysql.dll

If it has a semicolon (;) at the beginning, it's disabled: remove that line and restart the web server.
Comment 4 DexPro 2005-05-08 04:49:08 UTC
I am still getting the following error:

Warning: dl() [function.dl]: Not supported in multithreaded Web servers - use
extension=mysql.so in your php.ini in C:\Program Files\Apache
Group\Apache2\htdocs\wiki\install-utils.inc on line 17
Could not load MySQL driver! Please compile php --with-mysql or install the
mysql.so module.
Comment 5 Richard J. Holton 2005-05-08 11:35:52 UTC
(In reply to comment #4)

Unless I'm mistaken, Brion made a typo in his instructions to you -- if you
followed them to the letter you would not have fixed the issue:

Find the line
extension=php_mysql.dll

It begins with a semicolon. Remove that semicolon (not the entire line).

If you have removed the entire line, replace it (minus the semicolon). In my
php.ini file, that line immediately follows the line
;extension=php_msql.dll
I'm not sure that order is significant, but just to be safe...

Closed since this is not a MediaWiki bug, but a PHP installation issue.
