    Unanswered: Please, please, please can someone help....php5 not recognizing mySQL

    This has caused me untold stress as I've searched the web, posted on forums for a while but no one can tell what's wrong!

    I'm trying to set up a WAMP environment on my Win XP Pro laptop. I've got Apache 2.0, php 5.0 working fine but for some reason php won't recognize mySQL (version 4.0).

    When I start my laptop I get an alert box saying
    "php startup: unable to load dynamic library c:\php5\ext\php_mysql.dll - The specified procedure could not be found."

    But I definetly DO have php_mysql.dll in c:\php5\ext\ ! Can anyone shine some light on this please!

    I've posted before on other forums but no one seems to be able to help..............just hoping someone out there has the answer!

    -----------------------

    For further info here's all what I've done

    1) Edited the Apache configuration file: (C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\conf\httpd.conf)

    Added the following lines at the right places

    LoadModule php5_module c:\php5apache2.dll
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .html


    2) From c:\php5 took php.ini-recommended and placed it into c:\WINDOWS and renamed it as php.ini

    3) From c:\php5 taken php5ts.dll and placed it into c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\

    4) Also got a copy of php5ts.dll into c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\

    5) Copied both libmysql.dll and libmysqli.dll to c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\

    6) Uncommented the lines extension=php_mysql.dll extension=php_mysqli.dll in the php.ini

    7) Also I have a copy of libmysql.dll in c:\php5\ext\

    8) 5) Copied both libmysql.dll and libmysqli.dll to c:\WINDOWS\

    9) Set the extension_dir in php.ini to the ext directory of my php5 installation e.g. extension_dir=C:\php5\ext

    Thank you for your reply and I don't mean to sound harsh but this is why I'm stressed out! I read this thread over 6 months ago done everything the people who wrote to it suggested and still the problem remained! Which was exactly my point. I certainly appreciate everyone's help but no one can come up with the answer!
