Maybe silly question...did you remove the semicolons from the line defining the extensions in the php.ini file.

I too was racking my brains over my php showing as MySql Supported while setting up Joomla1.5 CMS.... See below:

Hi first post here. I just went through a similar issue while installing Joomla 1.5 Beta on my development machince (home) and I think it may be of use to others to be explicit about what I did to solve it.

To make sure that PHP is compiled with MySQL and MySQLi support do three (3) things:

1) make sure that your php.ini file (for windows usually c:\php\php.ini) has these two lines (with no semicolon in front)


you might have to add the second line (I did)

2) make sure your 'extension_dir' line is correct in the same php.ini file, in my case:

extension_dir = "c:\php\"

3) I did this but not sure if it affect any of my other extension capabilities, but I did so because libmysql.dll was already in this directory: copy both php_mysql.dll and php_mysqli.dll from the c:\php\ext\ directory into the c:\php directory.

Now my installation works. Does anyone have any comment? Maybe this is backwards and I should have copied libmysql.dll into the /ext/ directory and stated that location in the extension_dir line in php.ini..
