At first you setup the MySQL root password as explained here. After you did that you get a copy of phpMyAdmin and install it to your webspace as the documents tell you. With that "tool" MySQL administration can't be easier...

installed phpmyadmin get this error


cannot load MySQL extension,

please check PHP Configuration.






1.20] I receive the error "cannot load MySQL extension, please check PHP Configuration".

To connect to a MySQL server, PHP needs a set of MySQL functions called "MySQL extension". This extension may be part of the PHP distribution (compiled-in), otherwise it needs to be loaded dynamically. Its name is probably mysql.so or php_mysql.dll. phpMyAdmin tried to load the extension but failed.


Usually, the problem is solved by installing a software package called "PHP-MySQL" or something similar.
