Connecting to MySQL Server
I am having a problem I do not understand. I have gone through everything in the book and have had no problems until I started to use PHP to connect to the MySQL server (page 96/96) at which point my browser displays the following error message:
"Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\desops\PHP with MySQL\createmovie.php on line 3"

I can connect to the server from the command prompt without no problems and I cannot understand why I am getting this error.

Does anyone out there have any idea what is going on please?

I had this same problem yesterday and found an error in my changes to php.ini file. See page 14 in in Chapter 2.

I started with php.ini-dist.
Copy this as php.ini to c:\windows.
Make sure you have not made a mistake in changes to php.ini as per page 16. I had an error in extension_dir = "c:/php/ext (note forward slashes)

See also this URL http://www.cs.wcupa.edu/~rkline/apache-php-win.html

The author has some additional changes to php.ini that I followed.

Hope this helps
