I am trying to figure out how to install pdo_mysql on to my 4.1 copy of (the excellent) uniform server and am completely stuck - I guess at first base (I'm pretty new to this).


I downloaded a copy that I assume needs to be compiled on a server - but cannot find out how to compile or install it on my local machine. I tried copying the files to the extensions folder and adding the lines:





To my php.ini file but I think that was a bit too simplistic as pdo.so and pdo_mysql.so don't exist until I assume it has been compiled.


Can anyone point me in the right direction please?


Cheers all,

On a Windows machine you do not need to compile anything that’s a Unix thing.


1] However you do need to obtain a full set of binaries goto http://uk.php.net/ and download

php-5.2.9-1-Win32.zip extract to any folder


2] Copy file: php-5.2.9-1-Win32\ext\php_pdo_mysql.dll

To folder: UniServer\udrive\usr\local\php\extensions


3] Edit php.ini

Add this line : extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll

(just below line: extension=php_pdo.dll)


Restart the servers. To check module installed, from Apanel select phpinfo()

About halfway down the page you will see the following entry:

pdo_mysql (PDO Driver for MySQL, client library version).


All the best
