I am able from a command prompt using mysql to connect to the server and perform any task. The above information is from phpinfo.php in htdocs.

MySQL Version 8.0.13
MySQL Workbench 8.0.13 (64 bit) functions correctly.

Using this file named c.php

/* Attempt MySQL server connection */

$link = mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "ThePassword", "movies");

// Check connection
if($link === false){
die("ERROR: Could not connect. " . mysqli_connect_error());

// Print host information
echo "Connect Successfully. Host info: " . mysqli_get_host_info($link);

// Close connection

Produces this:
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysqli_connect() in C:\Apache24\htdocs\c.php:4 Stack trace: #0 {main} thrown in C:\Apache24\htdocs\c.php on line 4

I have tried every variation of procedural object oriented and still cannot connect.

Help Please
