Default Trouble connecting MySQL to PHP

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\test\createmovie.php on line 4

I'm getting this error when I try to run one of the code examples in "Beginning PHP5, Apache, MySQL Web Development" chapter 3, page 95.

It seems to me that this is because I haven't successfully established a connection between MySQL and PHP. I checked the configuartion file php.ini-recommended and I followed all the instructions on the configuration setup, page 16. Any assistance will be appreciated.

Hello. I had this problem too, but it's been awhile, so I don't recall the specifics as to how I fixed this. However, be sure that your php.ini file is in c:\windows (assuming you are using windows) so Apache can find it. And make sure you edit c:\windows\php.ini instead of c:\php\php.ini. Check page 14 in the book and it points this out, if you didn't already do that. I think I may have copied c:\php\php.ini over to c:\windows\php.ini when I first encountered this problem.

I also left my libmysql.dll file in c:\php. I have included c:\php in my PATH enviroment variable.

I wish I could recall where I discovered all this stuff...it's been at least a month since I set this stuff up. I'm on chapter 7 now.

Well, good luck. Hope this helps!

**If anyone knows why Apache looks in c:\windows instead of c:\php for the php.ini file, please let me know. I assume its some sore of variable I can set either in a config file or the path environment variable itself.
