I'm starting up a small website for PC hardware news & reviews. To do this I've decided to create a Joomla template and installed Joomla on my own Web Server, for now just to try it out. I'm using IIS, PHP 5.2.17 and MySQL 5.5. After loading the Joomla pre-installation check page, I got the following error
Database Support : No
Which is strange as I've already created a new MySQl database, user and granted all privileges to that user. After a quick Google search : http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=236&t=277540 many people who've encountered the same problem have had to change the php.ini file found in the folder where you've installed PHP , however this tutorial is for people using Apache whereas I'm currently using IIS. Any advice on how to correct the Database Support error?
Thanks in advance,
