try locating and setting the following parameter in your php.ini (it is in the Dynamic Extensions section):

extension=php_mysql.dll

prior to this change, I could make a simple php script without mysql run, like this

<?php
phpinfo(();
?>

but not another one like this

<?php
echo mysql_connect ('localhost', '<yourwebuser>', '<yourwebuserpassword>');
?>

the previous should normally output something like:

Resource id #n

where n=1 or 2 or

I thank you for ur answers.

Is a php configuration,
using phpinfo() you have to see the mysql installed,
if not installed reinstall the php and select to install even the mysql module.

I'm getting the same error; but installing any type of Microsoft SQL database is NOT the answer; JOOMLA requires MySQL database. Any other suggestions? Thanks
