Default Problem Installing AMP Environment on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Edition

I apologize in advance if this posting is gratuitous and has already been answered, but I have yet to find an adequate answer to this question.

I am an IT web development/design student in the CUNY BA Program of the City University of New York.

Until recently, I had successfully configured an AMP environment consisting of Apache HTTP Server, MySQL, PHP and phpMyAdmin running on Windows XP Professional SP3.

Since the beginning of this year, I have been trying to no avail to get the same configuration to work under Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Edition.

Apache works on its own, but I encounter the following anomalies:

  1. The phpinfo() class correctly displays the php information page.
  2. Noticeably absent, however are the listings for the mysql and mysqli extensions. Only mysqlnd is present.
  3. This is despite the facts that:
    1. The httpd.conf file set PHPIniDIR = 'C:/Windows';
    2. The php.ini file uncommented the extension=php_mysql.dll and extension=php_mysqli.dll lines.
  4. Any attempts at scripts that access the MySQL Server result in the following error messages:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysqli_connect() OR
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect()
I am trying valiantly to get back to my studies so that I can solidify and augment my existing knowledge and would greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide. I have been at a loss. Any of the online tutorials I have seen reference Windows 7 betas and contradict one another on what a proper configuration is.

If you need additional information, please let me know and I will gladly provide it.
