You need the MySQL PHP extension installed. If you don't mysqli is also a good choice, that is also MySQL.


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

the latest version of WAMP should give you both the MySQL and MySQLi options. Is MySQL running when you start the server? are you able to load phpMyadmin?

If so do you have ocPortal installed in a subdirectory of wamp? |(eg: C:\wamp\www\ocPortal\
