Hello ALL:

New to the forum. I have run into a problem over the past 48 hours for which I can't seem to be able to resolve. I am running an Apache 2.0 Server, with PHP, and MySQL. All servers were working fine until 48 hours ago when all hell broke loose while evaluating a php software. Before the problem, PHP software could access MySQL databases; now whenever I attempt to run these software that once work, I get this error from one software. In other instances when I attempt to use other php software, I get an Internal Error 500. Of Note, php and mysql work independently, but a not talking to each other like before.

This PHP environment doesn't have MySQL support built in. MySQL support is required if you want to use a MySQL database to run this forum. Consult the PHP documentation for further assistance.
I have reinstalled a fresh php.ini with similar values to the previous php.ini, but it does not resolve the problem. Also, when I try to run phpmyadmin, I get an error indicating:
cannot load mysqli extension,
please check PHP Configuration

I have also edited the path in the environmental variables to no avail.

Can anyone shed light on how I can go about resolving this problem? I have read and read to no avial. Any insight will be appreciated. Thanks for your assistance in advance.

In the php.ini remove the semicolon

if you are using it.

there also might be a problem with Apache and that is a different story.
