I have installed Apache 2.4 + PHP 5.4.15 + MySQL 5.6 on a Windows 7 machine.
I was able to fix the initial errors that popped up for the install, but not the database recognition part.

I am getting the following error:

"SilverStripe has the module installed, but PHP is missing the required extension

The PHP extension is missing, please enable or install it."

I have enabled Mysql in PHP, but I am not sure what is missing here.
I am able to connect to the DB via HeidiSQL, but SS would not see it... not sure what the problem is,
I have attached the php.ini file and phpinfo output... for reference...

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

You need to enabled the MySQLi extension.
