Windows 7: Windows 7 Apache + phpBB3

21 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 & Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Beta
Windows 7 Apache + phpBB3

Well, I followed someone's advice, and installed Apache HTTP server on my reformatted windows 7 computer. Anyway, I installed php5 and MySQL. When I set up the server, I enter localhost or my internal IP, enter 3306 as the port, root and ****** as the password. This is with MSSQL Server 2000+ via ODBC.

I simply installed Apache, configured it to use php (which is stored @ C:\PHP), installed MySQL, and made a db with the name phpbb.

Can I use phpmyadmin to do this? But, when I do, I get:
Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration. - Documentation

How should I fix this?
