Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Based on the number of Google 'finds' on this topic it is OFTEN encountered.
Unfortunately there never seems to be an answer as to how to specifically resolve it.
Many general statements like: Edit your PHP.INI file, but not much in detail

And even the one specific reference to this topic in this forum isn't getting me the answer either.

So here's is what I have:
* Win7 OS development workstation
* Win IIS Not Running (so as to prevent conflicts)
* Apache, PHP, MySQL & Wordpress (all latest versions) were all installed independently not using some 'packaged' installation utility.
* Apache installed and Service Started
* PHP installed and working (according to running test.php which delivers phpinfo())
* I have added the PHP directory to my Windows PATH
* The various MySQLi extension configurations are Un-Commented in my PHP.INI file
* MySQL installed and working (according to launching the MySQL GUI)
* WordPress files un-zipped into the Apache HTDocs directory

Additionally when I run the following test script - I get "Connected Successfully!":

CODE -->

<?php
   $conn = mysqli_connect("localhost", 'root', <root password here>);
   if (!$conn) {
     die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
   }
   else {
     echo "Connected Successfully!";
   }
   mysqli_close($conn);
?> 

My PHPInfo() script results informs me of the following:
mysqli
MysqlI Support enabled
Client API library version mysqlnd 5.0.11-dev - 20120503 - $Id: bf9ad53b11c9a57efdb1057292d73b928b8c5c77 $
Active Persistent Links 0
Inactive Persistent Links 0
Active Links 0

Directive Local Value Master Value
mysqli.allow_local_infile On On
mysqli.allow_persistent On On
mysqli.default_host 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1
mysqli.default_port 3306 3306
mysqli.default_pw <root password here> <root password here>
mysqli.default_socket no value no value
mysqli.default_user root root
mysqli.max_links Unlimited Unlimited
mysqli.max_persistent Unlimited Unlimited
mysqli.reconnect Off Off

But when I attempt to launch WordPress I get:
Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

Any advice on how to proceed to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

WordPress uses the mysql extension. Not the mysqli extension.

They are different things.

The mysql extension is deprecated in php and has been for some time. But is still supported.

To be sure of working OK you need to download that extension and use it. There are workarounds that will enable the mysqli extension with WordPress core but I could not guarantee that your install would work with any plugin that is not strictly in compliance with WordPress standards.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
OK, I'll give that a try, but I read somewhere that the MySQL extension was deprecated and replaced by the MySQLI extension.

See: http://www.pontikis.net/blog/how-to-use-php-improv...
Old MySQL extension officially deprecated since PHP 5.5.0 in late 2012 and it will be removed in the future.
And other Google "finds"

And the latest version of PHP that I have installed is 5.5.11

Regardless, I'll give it a try and see how things progress (or not).

Thanks,
JRB-Bldr

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

see my post above. yes it is deprecated. but still supported.

the wp-core dev team know about this and have done for a while. If you want I can provide you with a modified wp-db.php which will work with mysqli or pdo but as said, if you use plugins that address the database layer directly (rather than through wpdb they will fail and you will need to edit them manually.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Thanks for the reply.

Since the development workstation is in my home office, I will have to wait until tomorrow so that I can get back to working on the WordPress installation.

At that time I will try to remove the MySQLi references in PHP.INI and see how it works.

Since my last entry I have found a number of other suggestions such as:
1. Move PHP.INI into the C:\WINDOWS directory
I don't guess that is necessary since modifying the Windows PATH setting to include the PHP directory should fix that.
2. Move the LibMySQL.DLL to the C:\Windows\System directory.
I did that, but it did not appear to resolve anything
3. Move all MySQL*.dll's to the C:\Windows\System directory.
I also did that, but it did not appear to resolve anything

So tomorrow I will try to remove the references to MySQLi

I'll let you know if it works.

Thanks
JRB-Bldr



RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

None of that is necessary (yet). You don't need to remove mysqli.
You just need to install mysql.

Depending on the php version you have mysql may not have been bundled. In which case you will have to download it separately and put it in the right directory (this should be fine as your normal extensions directory but on the dim and distant past it was easier to put it in system32)
And of course edit php.INI and restart the web server.

Honestly it's much simpler to do than it is to type!

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
As I indicated above the MySQL Server is installed and I have created a WordPress database/schema within it.

And the MySQL Test Connection script confirmed that PHP can connect to it.
But when I used MySQL commands in the script (mysql_connect() & mysql_close()) instead of MySQLi commands (mysqli_connect() & mysqli_close()), the Test Connect script failed.

And PHPInfo() shows MySQLi instead of MySQL.
Are there particular settings within PHP.INI which would change that?

Additionally I have confirmed that both Apache and MySQL Servers are running before attempting the WordPress test.

Thanks,
JRB-Bldr

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

I am so sorry. We are miscommunicating. It must be confusing.

mysql as a term has a a number of uses. More properly there is mysql server (in a number of flavours), a mysql command line client and a number of what are called 'mysql-bindings'.

These mysql bindings are client libraries that are accessible by different programming languages such as perl, python and php.

For php there a number of mysql-bindings. Some are based on the mysqlnd libary and some on older stuff. the difference predominantly is in the available licence and thus whether it can be bundled with php.

so we have:

1. mysql - the old, well tested, slightly slower, definitely working, deprecated client library
2. mysqli - the so-called 'improved' library based on mysqlnd
3. pdo-mysql - the mysql library for use with pdo, based on mysqlnd
4. odbc-mysql - a driver for odbc. different versions (mysql vs mysqlnd) are available.

there are also other bindings accessible to php for mysql.

so

Irrelevant to the mysql extension. Wordpress only supports the mysql client library extension. I have written plugins to extend this but that is a kludge.
To be clear: wordpress does NOT support mysqli and does NOT support PDO natively.
I do not know how you managed to create the schema. That should not have been possible through Wordpress (the automated installer). Assuming that you are referring to the WP database schema rather than the file structure.

Quote:


And the MySQL Test Connection script confirmed that PHP can connect to it.
this is a nomenclature issue. the script you used should properly have been called a mysqli to mysql-server test connection script.
It does not test the ability to connect with the mysql-binding for php.

Quote:


And PHPInfo() shows MySQLi instead of MySQL.
ok. without the mysql extension being available wordpress will not work without a plugin (or editing - I can do either for you).

Quote:


Are there particular settings within PHP.INI which would change that?
yes - uncomment the mysql extension (not the mysqli extension). if it is not available (depending on the version of php you are using) you may have to find the library yourself online or compile it manually.

Quote:


Additionally I have confirmed that both Apache and MySQL Servers are running before attempting the WordPress test.
Sure - neither are relevant to the mysql library for php.

again - I am very sorry if my previous responses caused frustration.
I frequently develop deep plugins for wordpress, it would be a cakewalk to fix wpdb if you are unable to install mysql natively. as said, this comes with a health-warning for non-compliant plugins.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
I do sincerely appreciate your patience with me on this matter.
And I sincerely appreciate your more in-depth explanations.

I am not so much frustrated as very confused.

OK, I just now edited my PHP.INI file.
I commented out all references to MySQLi
And un-commented all references to MySQL

CODE -->

extension=php_mysql.dll
;extension=php_mysqli.dll
extension=pdo_mysql.dll 

Note: The extension=MySQL.so line is still commented out since I cannot find ANY .so file having been installed anywhere.

I then did a ReStart of my Apache server

Now when I attempt to run the PHPInfo() script I now show a MySQL block of info instead of the MySQLi block.

Additionally it is showing blocks of info for: MySQLInd & pdo_mysql.
Should I have commented them out as well?
Or does it matter?

But when I attempt to run the WordPress Index.php I get a "Waiting for localhost" (despite MySQL Server being named: MySQLSrvr as shown in PHPInfo()) showing on my browser's status bar and nothing else.

Thanks,
JRB-Bldr

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

that all looks good.
it does not matter if any other extension is loaded - just that mysql (vanilla) is loaded.
mysql.so refers to a shared object which is what the dll is known as on *nix servers.

your browser saying 'waiting for localhost' is not because it is trying to communicate with a mysqlserver but because it cannot find you local apache server or cannot get information from it (for apache read iis or whatever it is you use).

in your php.ini file make sure that startup error display is turned on and that error reporting is set high (E_ALL) and that display errors is turned on. then restart the apache/iis server and retest. then you should at least get some error messages if it is php that is causing trouble.

do bear in mind that even though the php.ini file may have a line that refers to php_mysql.dll that is no guarantee that it has been shipped with a distribution of php_mysql.dll as for a long time the licences were not compatible so it was not able to do so, leaving users to install the dlls manually.

if you post back output from any error message and perhaps your phpinfo that may help us.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
your browser saying 'waiting for localhost' is not because it is trying to communicate with a mysqlserver but because it cannot find you local apache server or cannot get information from it (for apache read iis or whatever it is you use).

OK, but if it cannot find the Apache server, how come having the Browser run my PHPInfo() script, the Apache Server is identified:
Under PhpInfo() - Configuration - Apache2handler it says:
Apache Version: Apache/2.4.9(Win32) PHP/5.5.11
Apache API Version: 20120211
Hostname:Port www.localhost:8080


Then under PhpInfo() - Configuration - Apache Environment it says:
HTTP_Host: localhost:8080
Document Root: D:\Apache\htdocs
Context_Document_Root: D:\Apache\htdocs


Wouldn't that imply that the Apache server is being 'seen'?
Especially since it shows even the specific version Apache number.

I have made the edits to the PHP.INI file to turn on Error Display.

;display_startup_errors
;Default Value: Off
Development Value: On
;Production Value: Off

;error_reporting
;Default Value: E_All & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED
Development Value: E_ALL
;Production Value: E_All & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT


After which I did a Stop & Start on the Apache Server.

But again when I attempted to go to Wordpress/Index.php all I got was Waiting for localhost... in the Browser status bar -- No Error messages displayed.

Thanks
JRB-Bldr

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
I do notice one thing more in the PHP.INI file under the MySQL configuration.

When I am defining how to connect to MySQL, I have entered:
mysql.default_host = MySQLSrvr (what I have named my MySQL Server)

;Default user for mysql_connect() (doesn't apply in safe mode)
mysql.default_user = root

;Default password for mysql_connect() (doesn't apply in safe mode)
mysql.default_password = <the root password>


My question concerns the use of mysql_connect().

When I attempt to use mysql_connect() in its own script

CODE -->

<?php
   $conn = mysql_connect("MySQLSrvr", 'root', <root password here>);
   if (!$conn) {
     die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
   }
   else {
     echo "Connected Successfully!";
   }
   mysql_close($conn);
?> 

to test the connectivity it fails telling me:
Deprecated mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead

So if PHP.INI is wanting configuration settings to use with mysql_connect() and that is no longer supported, what do I need to do.

As I indicated before it is not so much frustrating, as it is very confusing.

Thanks,
JRB-Bldr



RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

CODE

;display_startup_errors
;Default Value: Off
Development Value: On

;error_reporting
;Default Value: E_All & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED
Development Value: E_ALL
;Production Value: E_All & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT 

the reference to dev and production values are to help you understand. so uncommenting those lines won't do anything. you need to do this

CODE

display_startup_errors ON
display_errors ON
error_reporting E_ALL & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_NOTICE 

the error about mysql shows that it is now correctly loaded. which is great. it's just a notice and not material.

try making the above changes to php.ini (and undoing the changes you have made) and restarting the apache server. you should be good to go then.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Thanks for your patience and your quick reply.

In my PHP.ini file I un-did the previous edits.
I then pasted in the lines you indicated

CODE -->

display_startup_errors ON
display_errors ON
error_reporting E_ALL & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_NOTICE 

After which I saved the PHP.INI file

I did a Stop & Start of the Apache server.
Upon attempting to access: http://localhost:8080/wordpress/index.php instead of it merely showing a blank screen with "Waiting for localhost.." in the status bar - I got:
Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.


It looks like I am back to square #1.

Thanks
JRB-Bldr



RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.


When you undid the changes to php.ini did you also undo the change to the extension=php_mysql.dll line? if so that was going one step too far. I should have been clearer that you were only to undo the changes relating to the error management.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
No, the only edits that I un-did in PHP.INI were related to the Errors.

Thanks,

No, the browser is simply communicating with a HTTP server, it neither knows nor cares where it is running as or on.

It is Apache that is telling the browser that it [Apache] is waiting for something on 'localhost' to respond.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Something I just found is interesting...

Before my PHPInfo() was showing a MySQL block of information (see 11 Apr 14 9:48 post above).
It is no longer showing that.

Here are the extensions that I have un-commented within my PHP.INI file
; ============================
;extension=mysql.so
;extension=mysqli.so


extension=php_mysql.dll
;extension=php_mysqli.dll
extension=php_pdo_mssql.dll
extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll
extension=php_pdo_oci.dll
extension=php_pdo_odbc.dll
extension=php_pdo_pgsql.dll
extension=php_pdo_sqlite.dll
extension=php_pgsql.dll
extension=pdo.so
extension=pdo_sqlite.so
extension=sqlite.so
extension=pdo_mysql.so
; ============================

All other extensions are commented out.

That has not changed since before, but somehow PHPInfo() was showing a MySQL block and now it is not. A mysqlnd block is being displayed (as it was before)

It is as though the MySQl extension is no longer working.
Stopping Apache and re-starting it does not change the PHPInfo() results.

Suggestions?

Thanks,
JRB-Bldr




RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

Please re-comment the lines that refer to .so files. These are Linux shared objects and not for windows.

By the by if you want also to be loading pdo (you are loading its drivers), then you must have this line before any of the others pdo extensions

extension=php_pdo.dll

However for the purposes of keeping debugging and communication very simple please also comment all lines that have pdo in them too. Likewise the php-pgsql extension.

Then for the sake of testing load up the command prompt and type php.exe -m
and see whether you get any start up errors. Ideally you will get a list of loaded extensions.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

Just FYI I read that the mysql extension can use the mysqlnd library. I have not done this myself so cannot vouch for its accuracy but the statement was implied on the php.nt website.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Please re-comment the lines that refer to .so files

Above I showed the mysql.so & mysqli.so files commented out (and colored Gray for Not-enabled)

By the by if you want also to be loading pdo...

I merely was following web reference suggestions about what to un-comment.
Un-commenting the POD extensions was not done due to a knowing decision.

OK, I have commented out all extensions starting with =pdo_ and the extension=sqlite.so

I saved the PHP.INI file. The I Stopped & Re-Started Apache.
Unfortunately on attempting to launch Wordpress/Index.php I still get the same message about MySQL extensions.

I have also confirmed that the file: php_mysql.dll still exists in both the PHP root directory (in the Windows PATH) and in its EXT directory (defined in PHP.INI), but it does not appear to be working since the MySQL configuration info still no longer appears within the PHPInfo() display.

Thanks,
JRB-Bldr

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

is this a box to which you can grant remote access?

in any event from the command line can you type php.exe -m and post the verbatim output here please.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
When I did as you suggested I got the following PHP Error
syntax error, unexpected '&' in D:\PHP\php.ini on line 456

Within my PHP.INI file, line 456 is as follows:
error_reporting E_ALL & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_NOTICE
Which is what was suggested above in the 14 Apr 14 15:23 posting.

And, I'd guess that this workstation COULD be made accessible from the outside for something like TeamViewer, GoToMeeting, etc. But currently it is not and I don't have a GoToMeeting account to use.

Thanks,

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

I see nothing wrong with that line. perhaps it would be better to express it as a NOT OR

CODE

error_reporting E_ALL & ~(E_STRICT | E_DEPRECATED | E_NOTICE) 

but these are just different ways of saying the same thing. another alternative

CODE

error_reporting E_ALL ^ (E_STRICT | E_DEPRECATED | E_NOTICE) 

I'm still a little baffled as to why you are having so much trouble. installing mysql takes a few minutes normally (you have installed mysql server haven't you? - you will need this if you will be running the database on your local server too; but not if you are running the database remotely and just connecting from your local machine). installing php takes less time than mysql and installing wordpress typically takes a few seconds.

Thus my fear is that there is something else going on.

the error_reporting directive just helps us ensure that error messages are being sent to the screen to help with debugging. the important next step is to run the terminal command that i asked for yesterday. that will give proper output that will help. I would also like you to post the whole of your php.ini file. it should not contain any personal information; if it does then replace it with asterisks or otherwise redact it.

I offer again to provide a workaround that will get you up and running. it will use mysqli and will work in all circumstances where a plugin has been properly written in accordance with wordpress standards. If you don't want this please expressly state that you don't and I will stop offering.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Thanks again for the reply.

Yes MySQL is installed and I just now doubly confirmed that the Service is set Automatic and it is Started.
Additionally when I go into the MySQL Workbench I can not only see the instance of the Server, but by going into it I can see where I previously created a Wordpress database/schema by using it.

As for the PHP Error, it is very confusing.
Within my PHP.INI file I find a commented (documentation) line:
; Default Value: E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED
the values of which basically matches the line that is being reported as an error by the use of the '&' sign.

Here is the entire PHP.INI file contents as it is today:

CODE -->

[PHP]

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About php.ini   ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; PHP's initialization file, generally called php.ini, is responsible for
; configuring many of the aspects of PHP's behavior.

; PHP attempts to find and load this configuration from a number of locations.
; The following is a summary of its search order:
; 1. SAPI module specific location.
; 2. The PHPRC environment variable. (As of PHP 5.2.0)
; 3. A number of predefined registry keys on Windows (As of PHP 5.2.0)
; 4. Current working directory (except CLI)
; 5. The web server's directory (for SAPI modules), or directory of PHP
; (otherwise in Windows)
; 6. The directory from the --with-config-file-path compile time option, or the
; Windows directory (C:\windows or C:\winnt)
; See the PHP docs for more specific information.
; http://php.net/configuration.file

; The syntax of the file is extremely simple.  Whitespace and lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future.

; Directives following the section heading [PATH=/www/mysite] only
; apply to PHP files in the /www/mysite directory.  Directives
; following the section heading [HOST=www.example.com] only apply to
; PHP files served from www.example.com.  Directives set in these
; special sections cannot be overridden by user-defined INI files or
; at runtime. Currently, [PATH=] and [HOST=] sections only work under
; CGI/FastCGI.
; http://php.net/ini.sections

; Directives are specified using the following syntax:
; directive = value
; Directive names are *case sensitive* - foo=bar is different from FOO=bar.
; Directives are variables used to configure PHP or PHP extensions.
; There is no name validation.  If PHP can't find an expected
; directive because it is not set or is mistyped, a default value will be used.

; The value can be a string, a number, a PHP constant (e.g. E_ALL or M_PI), one
; of the INI constants (On, Off, True, False, Yes, No and None) or an expression
; (e.g. E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE), a quoted string ("bar"), or a reference to a
; previously set variable or directive (e.g. ${foo})

; Expressions in the INI file are limited to bitwise operators and parentheses:
; |  bitwise OR
; ^  bitwise XOR
; &  bitwise AND
; ~  bitwise NOT
; !  boolean NOT

; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.

; An empty string can be denoted by simply not writing anything after the equal
; sign, or by using the None keyword:

;  foo =         ; sets foo to an empty string
;  foo = None    ; sets foo to an empty string
;  foo = "None"  ; sets foo to the string 'None'

; If you use constants in your value, and these constants belong to a
; dynamically loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend extension),
; you may only use these constants *after* the line that loads the extension.

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About this file ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; PHP comes packaged with two INI files. One that is recommended to be used
; in production environments and one that is recommended to be used in
; development environments.

; php.ini-production contains settings which hold security, performance and
; best practices at its core. But please be aware, these settings may break
; compatibility with older or less security conscience applications. We
; recommending using the production ini in production and testing environments.

; php.ini-development is very similar to its production variant, except it's
; much more verbose when it comes to errors. We recommending using the
; development version only in development environments as errors shown to
; application users can inadvertently leak otherwise secure information.

; This is php.ini-development INI file.

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; Quick Reference ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; The following are all the settings which are different in either the production
; or development versions of the INIs with respect to PHP's default behavior.

; Output buffering is a mechanism for controlling how much output data
; (excluding headers and cookies) PHP should keep internally before pushing that

; Turning on this setting and managing its maximum buffer size can yield some
; interesting side-effects depending on your application and web server.
; You may be able to send headers and cookies after you've already sent output
; through print or echo. You also may see performance benefits if your server is
; emitting less packets due to buffered output versus PHP streaming the output
; as it gets it. On production servers, 4096 bytes is a good setting for performance
; reasons.

; This directive informs PHP of which errors, warnings and notices you would like
; it to take action for. The recommended way of setting values for this
; directive is through the use of the error level constants and bitwise
; operators. The error level constants are below here for convenience as well as
; some common settings and their meanings.
; By default, PHP is set to take action on all errors, notices and warnings EXCEPT
; those related to E_NOTICE and E_STRICT, which together cover best practices and
; recommended coding standards in PHP. For performance reasons, this is the
; recommend error reporting setting. Your production server shouldn't be wasting
; resources complaining about best practices and coding standards. That's what
; development servers and development settings are for.
; Note: The php.ini-development file has this setting as E_ALL. This
; means it pretty much reports everything which is exactly what you want during
; development and early testing.
;
; Error Level Constants:
; E_ALL             - All errors and warnings (includes E_STRICT as of PHP 5.4.0)
; E_ERROR           - fatal run-time errors
; E_RECOVERABLE_ERROR  - almost fatal run-time errors
; E_WARNING         - run-time warnings (non-fatal errors)
; E_PARSE           - compile-time parse errors
; E_NOTICE          - run-time notices (these are warnings which often result
;                     from a bug in your code, but it's possible that it was
;                     intentional (e.g., using an uninitialized variable and
;                     relying on the fact it's automatically initialized to an
;                     empty string)
; E_STRICT          - run-time notices, enable to have PHP suggest changes
;                     to your code which will ensure the best interoperability
;                     and forward compatibility of your code
; E_CORE_ERROR      - fatal errors that occur during PHP's initial startup
; E_CORE_WARNING    - warnings (non-fatal errors) that occur during PHP's
;                     initial startup
; E_COMPILE_ERROR   - fatal compile-time errors
; E_COMPILE_WARNING - compile-time warnings (non-fatal errors)
; E_USER_ERROR      - user-generated error message
; E_USER_WARNING    - user-generated warning message
; E_USER_NOTICE     - user-generated notice message

;                     of PHP
; E_USER_DEPRECATED - user-generated deprecation warnings
;
; Common Values:
;   E_ALL (Show all errors, warnings and notices including coding standards.)

; This directive controls whether or not and where PHP will output errors,
; notices and warnings too. Error output is very useful during development, but
; it could be very dangerous in production environments. Depending on the code
; which is triggering the error, sensitive information could potentially leak
; out of your application such as database usernames and passwords or worse.
; It's recommended that errors be logged on production servers rather than
; having the errors sent to STDOUT.
; Possible Values:
;   Off = Do not display any errors

;
; The path can be defined as:
;
;     session.save_path = "N;/path"
;
; where N is an integer.  Instead of storing all the session files in
; /path, what this will do is use subdirectories N-levels deep, and
; store the session data in those directories.  This is useful if you
; or your OS have problems with lots of files in one directory, and is
; a more efficient layout for servers that handle lots of sessions.
;
; NOTE 1: PHP will not create this directory structure automatically.
;         You can use the script in the ext/session dir for that purpose.
; NOTE 2: See the section on garbage collection below if you choose to
;         use subdirectories for session storage
;
; The file storage module creates files using mode 600 by default.
; You can change that by using

Since the problem persists and has even gone back to the problems of last week, I will gladly consider your 'workaround'.

I have just been trying to follow previous advice of doing everything 'raw' so that I would better understand what needed to be done where and how.
Unfortunately that isn't happening. I am still just blindly doing as suggested without really understanding why is is needed nor why is it useful.
Additionally when I made my first attempts at getting WP working I used a 'packaged installation' which gave me down-level versions of the various software parts and wouldn't support upgrades to the pieces.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

at the moment all we are trying to do is get the php.ini file working so that if there are errors in your php setup we get told about them. if there are not, then it points to something else (of course ...) so here is a massively shorter php.ini file. you'll want to switch back to a full version so that you can see the comments etc, when you go into production. but for now this is a little easier to digest.

if you can put this in place (rename the old one) and do make sure that no other php.ini files are being loaded (check by running phpinfo() - it will tell you the php.ini files that it is looking at). then run php.exe -m and that should tell us the loaded extensions.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Thanks.

OK, I saved off my original PHP.INI as PHP_SAVE.INI
And I made a new PHP.INI containing your code above.
I did enter the MySQL user & password info

I did have a question...
My Apache Server is 'localhost' and your code above shows the MySQL server also named 'localhost'.
Is that correct?
Consequently being uncertain about if correct or not, I changed the MySQL server name to what I have named it: MySQLSrvr

I did a STOP & START of the Apache Server

PHPInfo() shows the correct PHP.INI file (the one I just now created and used your code - with the minor above edits)
And PHPInfo() now shows a MySQL block of configuration info.

But on attempting to run: http://localhost:8080/wordpress/index.php I again get "Waiting for localhost..."

Suggestions?

Thanks,
JRB-Bldr

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
On opening the MySQL Workbench I see:
Local instance: MySQLSrvr
root
localhost:3306

(NOTE - for me it is confusing to have BOTH the Apache Web Server and the MySQL Server using 'localhost' as a definition. That is why during the installation I thought that I named the MySQL Server as 'MySQLSrvr'. But what do I know?)

With that in mind I guess that having the MySQL server configured as 'localhost' in the PHP.INI file is OK.

Therefore I put it back to that setting in the PHP.INI file.

Unfortunately after a STOP & START of Apache, the attempt to reach Wordpress/index.php was still showing "waiting for localhost..."

Thanks

you don't need to do that. in fact could you remove those changes and leave them blank.

then please create a new folder in your web root with this code in it and run the code either by pointing your browser at it or from the command line (php.exe testscript.php)

CODE --> testscript.php

$dbHost = 'localhost';
$dbUser = '';

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

hooray. therefore everything is fine with php and mysql.

provided you have deleted the references from php.ini you should now find that the wordpress install works ok.
delete the wp-config.php first (but not the wp-config-sample.php as you may need that later).

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

No joy in Mudville

I removed the MySQL login info from the PHP.INI file so that it now looks like the following:

mysql.allow_local_infile = On
mysql.allow_persistent = On
mysql.cache_size = 2000
mysql.max_persistent = -1
mysql.max_links = -1

mysql.default_socket =
mysql.default_host = localhost
mysql.default_user = 
mysql.default_password = 


Once again I did a STOP & RESTART of the Apache Server.

But on trying to access Wordpress, I still get the "waiting for localhost..."

Thanks
JRB-Bldr


RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

not sure what that issue could be.

do you get that on the very first page or on a later step of the installer?

had you deleted wp-config.php as I suggested? and of course not created a new one (but allow wordpress to do it)?

and one potential gotcha - have you made sure that the apache user (ie. whatever the user under whose permissions apache runs on windows) has read/write permissions to the whole webroot. you can tighten the permissions afterwards.



RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
When I try to go to WordPress/Index.php I don't get any pages at all.
The browser shows either the last visited page (such as the PHPInfo() page) or, if I haven't gone into anything yet, a blank page.

The 'waiting for localhost...' isn't shown on the page itself, but in the Browser status bar and the tab text shows 'Connecting....'

I had not deleted the wp-config.php file. I must have over-looked that suggestion.
I just now renamed that file to wp-config_SAVE.php and tried again.
Same results.

As far as the Apache user, I don't remember setting up anything special there.
And I don't know how to examine and/or modify the current settings within Apache since I don't find any applications listed in the Windows Start Programs list.

Thanks,
JRB-Bldr

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

two options I guess. the first is to edit the wp-config.php file manually. the second is to continue exploring the write settings of apache on windows. I don't know enough about windows to know how to do that but a google search may help.

on the first the steps are as follows:

1. open up your mysql client (workbench or the command line or whatever) and create a new database called wordpress. ('create database wordpress;')

2. open up wp_config_sample.php in a pure text editor (so not wordpad or ms word etc).

3. edit the first few lines of the file to include your specific data as shown

CODE

// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress');

/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', 'username_here');

/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here');

/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

/** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

/** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
define('DB_COLLATE', ''); 

leave the DB_HOST line as localhost.

4. go to this address: https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/ and copy the text therein.

5. paste the text in to the wp-config file from line 45 onwards (delete the equivalents there)

6. save the file

go to the wordpress install again and see whether you get further.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Hurray!!!!!

The 'Pièce de résistance' were the edits within WP-Config.php

Not only was the Server defined with the wrong port there, but the username/passwords were in need of editing.

Now when I Browse to Wordpress/Index.php, I get the first actual WordPress page ('Information needed') asking for configuration information.

I still wonder if I shouldn't find a way to name the MySQL Server something other than 'localhost' when that is also the name of the Apache Server.

Thanks for all of your patience and assistance.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

Great news.

Although I am surprised that deleting wp-config.php did not work in the first place. the wp behaviour is to check whether wp-config.php exists and if not, plunge you into the routine for creating that file as part of the install process. the only time when I can see that going wrong is if the wp-config file did exist and contained some stuff that was causing lockups with the mysql server. it should then have timed-out after (probably) 30 seconds. Deleting the file should have reset everything.

Quote:

great news!

localhost has a special meaning. In general it refers to the current machine. i.e. the loopback address.

So the apache server is not 'called' localhost; it is just serving web pages on the loopback address. And probably all the IP addresses that are bound.

When you type localhost into your browser the system level DNS will lookup the name (probably in the hosts file. My hosts file looks like this. Probably yours does too:

CODE

127.0.0.1	localhost
255.255.255.255	broadcasthost
::1             localhost 
fe80::1%lo0	localhost 

So the system points the browser at 127.0.0.1 (the loopback address).

For mysql on linux 'localhost' means 'use a default local socket'. To force mysql to use IP addresses you would specify 127.0.0.1 as the host. For windows, there are no sockets and the use of named pipes is possible but not default behaviour for mysql. So although a named pipe of MySQL will exist (probably) you can't use it as a connection parameter unless other things are done to mysql. Also I don't know whether the client libraries support it.

you can use fully qualified domain names too, as they will resolve to an IP address. I do not know whether you can use netbios names, but I suspect not natively. Perhaps by setting up a system DSN it would work but I have read odd things about that too.

So basically using 'localhost' just tells the client library to look for the server on the loopback address (127.0.0.1) on whatever port you specify (or failing that, the default port of 3306).

Do remember to ensure that the apache process (run as a service I'd guess) has permission to write to the wp-content directory otherwise you will run into problems. You specify the process credentials during installation. Hopefully you have not given it admin or network privileges on the LocalSystem account. Recommended practice (from the apache manual) in windows is to create an account specifically for the mysql process and then specify that account in the services snap-in and provide that account with
(a)    membership of Users and
(b)    read and execute (RX) rights to all document and script folders (htdocs and cgi-bin for example).
(c)    read/write/execute rights (RWXD) rights to the Apache logs directory.
(d)    read/execute (RX) rights to the httpd.exe binary executable.

RE: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

(OP)
Do remember to ensure that the apache process (run as a service I'd guess) has permission to write to the wp-content directory otherwise you will run into problems.

Again, I am not sure how to check that since there are no Apache Applications that came with the Apache installation 'package' which are available for me to use for that purpose.

Apache runs as a Windows Service which I can check Started - Or Not, but otherwise I have no idea how to interrogate its configuration.
Maybe there are some tools I can find on the web to help with that - I'll check.

Also since Apache is an Automatic launch Service, I have no idea what 'user' is being utilized by Wordpress. I haven't designated one in any of the Config files.

What I don't get about 'localhost' is that in order to test things like PHPInfo() I browse to:
where the MySQL Server itself isn't called at all.
From that I assume that 'localhost' is referring to the Web Server which is Apache.

Then when WordPress needs to 'talk' to MySQL, it is calling the MySQL Server 'localhost' even after my naming the MySQL Server 'MySQLSrvr' during the installation process.

Thanks,

Localhost is a synonym for 127.0.0.1 in this sense. Try that instead of localhost in your browser and you will find that it works. It is just a DNS entry. The mysql service listens on port 3306 and Apache httpd on port 80 and443. So no conflict. Likewise replace localhost with 127.0.0.1 in your wpconfig and it will work.

When php talks to mysql it is doing so over an IP connection. Like a browser talking to a webserver.
