    Need some help please. I am just trying to install SMF and I get the following error.
    SEMrush
    The installer was unable to detect MySQL support in PHP. Please ask your host to ensure that PHP was compiled with MySQL, or that the proper extension is being loaded.

    I am running MYSQL 4.0.23a and PHP ver 5 any help please guys as I am pulling m hair out here.

    You will want to check which mysql extensions you have installed in your PHP version (probably mysqli since that's the default for PHP5). The problem is mysqli is only for MySQL 4.1 or higher, so that could be the problem.

    Also, check to see if SMF supports both mysql and mysqli PHP extensions.

    Don't use SMF. ITs a horrible system that lacks in many areas.
