|Is the server on Windows or *nix? If it's linux, I'm definitely not going to be much help with configuration issues. Hopefully, someone else will be able to help out in that case. |
If it's Windows, do you have the mysql command line client installed? If so, use it to login using those credentials. If the user account is properly set up, then you'll be able to query the server once php is configured. I've never used webmin.
I'd forgotten all about the php.ini file, but that would keep you from using mysql too. Edit the php.ini file and look for extension=php_mysql.dll You will also need to verify that the extension path is set correctly to that of php. If you still have issues, then you *might* get away with copying libmysql.dll to the system32 folder.
error_reporting is mostly for php coding errors. I'm not sure if it would flag sql not existing.
Hope that helps.
My work in progress. I hate JS. :P
