PHP5, MySQL5, and PHPBB2 Help


Recommended Posts

Ok, going to my last resort LOL. I have my own web server running win 2k3 with IIS6. I am trying to get phpBB installed on it I have setup PHP 5 and mysql5 as outlined in the readme's to supposedly have it work with PHPBB but when i goto the install page i keep getting this error.....

An error has occurred during installation

The PHP configuration on your server doesn't support the database type that you chose

I have the latest dll's from mysql installed in the php directory and i have added to the php.ini:



What am i missing?

Any help is greatly appreciated

Thank you.

I've gotten it to work fine for me but with PHP4...

Did you install MySQL Admin? or the GUI interface?

Did you setup your site to run with the PHP extension? (CGI mode)

Haven't set it up in a while though so I am rusty...

I suggest a Google search...

I finally got it to work today. After hours and hours of google searching i found an article about changing the registry value for software/php to point to my C:phpphp.ini after this change it was working like a charm.

Just want to thank you for all the help
