yeah probalby the wrong forum to post this, but hey...this is OT I live here and don't post on many other message boards regularly. when attempting to install my board on the local host from http://localhost/forums/install/index.php I get this error after clicking the red x at the bottom of the pic below (not sure why I'm getting no pics either): Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\forums\ips_kernel\class_db_mysql.php on line 117 I'm guessing it's something I'm doing wrong here because I have no idea what the SQL DB name is or if I've created one or if this creates one. Note, that I have filled out all required feilds when I go to install from this page. Also I probably shouldn't use root but that's the only username I have for mysql right now. Hope someone has some experience with this cuz I don't I tried to decipher the error on line 117 by editing the class_db_mysql.php but I'm not that good. Server 2003, IPB v2.0.3., IIS 6.0 (yes I know Apache, bah), mysql 4.1.11, and php 5.04. PHP is working as my test page works. I probalby shouldn't have use the msi installer for mysql, but I didn't see anywhere advising against it.
