Later versions of PhpED provide features for managing the MySQL library, but I don't think that was in 5.9

Try this:

1. Exit PhpED
2. Locate your MySQL installation bin directory and find the libmysql.dll
3. *Copy* (not move) that file to the PhpED directory, overwriting the existing file (keep a copy of that file if you wish, but it isn't useful)
4. Start PhpED and give it a go

The original PhpED supplied libmysql.dll is quite small (mine was 228KB) and the new one is much larger (mine is 2MB).

@plugnplay

Yes!!! - that worked i noticed that the old, libmySQL.dll file was dated 2004 the replacement was 2009 - guess that was really old


Much thanks

NOTE: this does _NOT_ work is v8 and higher versions of PhpED. In this case you have to install MySQL Connector-C (32bit version)
