    Unanswered: unable to find php_mysql.dll

    Hi all,
    I just downloaded php 5.0 and i found out that php_mysql.dll doesn't come bundled with it .
    I copied the libmysql.dll file to the system32 directory and enabled the extension=php_mysql.dll in ini file . However , I don't find the php_mysql.dll in the php package and because of this the browser always says "Unable to load dynamic library" ....

    Can anyone please tell me the link of where i can go and find the dll file ?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Celia

    php_mysql.dll

    Yes , rajesh . I did go through that post but it doesn't answer my question. I DO have uncommented that line in php.ini and DO have copied my libmysql.dll file in system32 directory .
    But unfortunately I don't have a php_mysql.dll shipped with the package that I downloaded yesterday from the site.It seems to have all the other dlls .
    Is there a link anywhere where I could download the php_mysql.dll file alone ?
    Thanks & Regards,
    Celia

    Celia, I checked my download the 'php_mysql.dll' in the PHP5 windows package is located in the 'PHP\extn' folder. I didn't do anything with the 'php_mysql.dll' just copied 'libmysql.dll' to the WINDOWS\System32 folder and uncommented the 'extension=php_mysql.dll' line in the PHP.ini file.

    I did a search on my system and found 5 occurrences of 'libmysql.dll' Some copies varied in size. This original was 228kb which I copied to the System32 folder.

    Also check your 'extension_dir', (extension_dir = "C:\php\ext") this line should be uncommented and path set to the php\ext
