Subject Re: [users@httpd] Not Sure If This Is An Appache Problem Or a PHP problem
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2008 23:33:53 GMT
Bradley you are the best!!  So I went to the page that u sent below that has information
specific to vista and now when i run the php test page i actuall get a path!!! 

Configuration File (php.ini) Path  C:\Windows  
Loaded Configuration File  C:\php\php.ini  
Yeah!!! but wait there's one last problem :-) .  

Remember Im using Windows Vista, Apache2..2, Php5 and the latest version of mysql.  So im 
trying to load my test page for mysql in the browser and I get a "this website cannot be
displayed" error HTTP 500.  This is the test page that im running: ( not sure if there's
something wrong with the codes or if i have a new problem now)  Thanks in advance guys.

/* Program: mysql_up.php
 * Desc:    Connects to MySQL Server and
 *          outputs settings.
 echo "<html>
       <head><title>Test MySQL</title></head>
 $cxn = mysqli_connect($host,$user,$password);
 $sql="SHOW STATUS";
 $result = mysqli_query($cxn,$sql);
 if($result == false)
    echo "<h4>Error: ".mysqli_error($cxn)."</h4>";
    /* Table that displays the results */
    echo "<table border='1'>
    for($i = 0; $i < mysqli_num_rows($result); $i++)
       echo "<tr>";
       $row_array = mysqli_fetch_row($result);
        for($j = 0;$j < mysqli_num_fields($result);$j++)
           echo "<td>".$row_array[$j]."</td>\n";
     echo "</table>";

grrrrrrrr  Ok that didnt work either.  Moved it again to the windows directory and restarted

Does it have anything to do with windows vista?  And yes I finally turned off the user account
control.  Im pasting the original message below in case we missed something.

I am trying to test that php is working properly with apache and with mysql and I keep getting
the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysqli_connect() in C:\Apache2.2\htdocs\mysql_up.php
on line 13

Now I have done absolutely everything that I have read in all of these forums and it still
is not working.  Below is a list of all that I have done so far:
   1.  Addded PHP to the windows path by going to "Advanced System Settings" and adding
C:/php to the path.
   2.  The php.ini file is currently located at c:/php/php.ini  
   3.  I have tried moving the php.ini file to the windows folder of my computer that
didnt work.
   4.  I have removed the restrictive comment from the extension php_mysqli.dll
  5.  I have re started apache several times.
  6.  Php in itself does seem to be working because I did create a test php page and below
is what shows up on that page.  From what I have read the fact that the loadedconfiguration
file section is blank means that my computer is not able to locate the php.ini file but i
honestly have no clue where else to put it because i've tried copying it everywhere to no

Please help if you can.  Below is what I got from a test page when i tested php alone on
apache...however when i try to test if all three are working i get the above error.

It went poof.  It was actually stored in your account and only appeared to
be in c:\windows.  NOW put a php.ini in there.

This looks like a good vista walk-through for you.

Hint, read the comments if you have problems.
