  1. Ok, i installed this...and THOUGHT everything was configured.

    I try to open it and it get this:

    cannot load MySQL extension,
    please check PHP Configuration.

    Documentation says i need to install i did. Installed fine.

    Tried it again. Same thing.

    Any ideas?

    Before you can use phpMyAdmin you first have to have both MYSQL and PHP modules working on your webserver and you have to have MYSQL Server running as well.

    To test php just make a file blah.php with <? print "hello world" ?>
    If you see "hello world" when you goto blah.php PHP is installed fine.

    Next is mysql running on your system?

    If your running in Linux/Unix do a ps -ax and look for something like "/usr/local/libexec/mysqld" and or "/bin/sh /usr/local/bin/safe_mysqld"
    If windows you should have a desktray icon or show up in processes.

    Once you do get this running dont forget to edit your file and set your Absoluteurl and user/pass if you are securing your mysql.

    Did you CHMOD your open-to-public files on the webserver?
