    Hi Guys,

    Can anyone tell me how to udpate my PHP's copy of the MySQL Library File? I have attempted to copy the libmySQL.dll file from the MySQL installation directory but when I try to use the PHP Congifuration with phpMyAdmin I get a FastCGI Error.

    Current PHP MySQL Library File: 5.0.51a
    Current MySQL Library File: 5.1.54

    Please can someone help me?

    Could you post the exact errors?

    Question have you verified the PHP installtion?

    Which verion of PhpMyAdmin is it?

    Many of the older installs have problesm with the current PHP and MySQL releases.

    The method your trying to use as from about three years ago.

    The place to put the libmySQL.dll is in the Windows\system32 directory after having made a backup

    of the existing one that was placed there by the old MySQL installers.

     The metod your trying to use has all kinds of mismatch versin problems.

    I would suggest that you use the MySQL Dump tool to create a back-up of the current databases.

    I would suggest that you update the PHP to a more current release.

    There have been many bugs related to the MySQL libries that have been fixed.

    You need to back-up data and do some upgrades to get what you want.

    Post Anwers,errors & question to this thread.

     wha's the purpose to upgrade? if it's really needed, I think you have to upgrade the entire php package.

    Hello @Topspy,

    If you are moving to a newer or updating existing version of PHP & MySQL Server:

    It is considered and Upgrade,Update both are true.

    For new install of PHP,MySQL Server changes are needed of your exisiing code to match the new version.

    The reason to back-up your code,data is prevent having the upgrade,update causing data loss.

    For the older 5.0 series that are part of the thread both PHP & MySQL Server

    are known to have Bugs,Issues for "Linux","Windows".

    If you check the Bugs at PHP net site you will find that the mysql librarys,PHP for the older 5.0 releases

    caused install and code problems.

    The thread post discussion is how to properly get the new versions

    with-out breaking PHP,MySQL Server & Windows.
