We just followed these instructions to get IIS, PHP 5.5.3, MySQL 126.96.36.199, and Xibo CMS 1.7.9 running on Windows 10 x64: http://xibo.org.uk/manual/en/install_environment_windows_iis.html
When we entered http://localhost/phpmyadmin into the browser, we got an error that PHP 5.5.3 was not supported. So we upgraded to PHP 7.1, Now the site works, and so does http://localhost/xibo. Everything on this page has a check mark except the 3rd item which says “MySQL support must be enabled in PHP.”
We searched everywhere and came up with 2 possibilities:
- PHP 7.1 is not supported (there are some references to this)
- The extensions for both php_mysql.dll and phop_mysqli.dll are enabled in php.ini. What’s odd is that both files are located in the PHP 5.5.3 folders, but ONLY the php_mysqli.dll file is located in the PHP 7.1 folders. Obviously a file is missing in the PHP 7.1 folders. Thoughts? Regardless, should I change the path in the php.ini file? If so, what is the proper syntax as the instructions are a bit confusing.
