XAMP – PHP – Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect()

Just installed the latest XAMP from ApacheFriends.org, and received this error.

WTF?

To fix, edit php.ini which is in XAMP home /php

unremmark  (remove the two ;;) from the line that contains ;;extension=php_mysql.dll

Now while I appreciate the work done on this free project, AMP does stand for Apache PHP-MYSQL,

one would assume that functionality would be “out of the box”. – silly me
