I have a development box running Windows XP, Apache 2.2.15 Mysql and PHP 5.2.6
About a month ago I updated the Apache to the latest version and it went swimmingly. I am not having the same success with upgrading PHP to the latest version.
I backed up my PHP directory and then deleted it. Used the Windows Installer for PHP 5.3.2, installed as an Apache 2.2.X module. I can get "Hello World" and phpinfo() to come up but cannot get mysql to connect. I have the extension un-commented in the php.ini and shouldn't really have to touch the Apache httpd.conf file since I didn't change the directory of PHP.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I have to get this right and then upgrade the Live Server too so I want to get this down pat.
I've tried to use installation guides on the web with no luck. Any info pertaining to this problem would be great. I'm also afraid that the other PHP modules may not load but cannot really tell anything past mysql not working.
This is what appears in phpinfo()

I cannot figure out how to enable mysql, mysqli etc. though they seem to be installed.
