PHP 5 no longer bundled with mysql libraries

Post by Talrias »

Unfortunately php 5 is no longer coming with the mysql library installed by default or even with the d/l. This means you have to go and find it yourself.

Even more annoyingly none of the 4.* versions I have come with it either as they have it included by default and so don't need the .dll (I'm using Win32).

I've been spending about 4 hours trying to find php_mysql.dll around the various sites on the internet and haven't had any luck yet.

If anyone has a link to it I'd be very grateful. :)

I'll keep you posted,
Tal

Try this link:

Its got a download and instructions.

I have to say this really sucks, as all of us on win machines are screwed. But since php has it in the latest sanpshots maybe its getting added back.

It works fine on windows, it just does not have mySQL support built in anymore. Not a problem if you can compile it, but most windwos useres cant

indeed - you need microsoft visual c++ which is not something i really want to waste money on.

also, the php license has now been osi-approved. so hopefully the mysql libs will be included from now on. :)

As the chaps says above, they left it out of a beta release of 5 because of licensing problems, but they've now been sorted out.

I wouldn't recommend installing pre-release software on a production server anyways....
