This is the error I'm getting:

Fatal error: Call to unsupported or undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test.php3 on line 3

This is the script:


    $link = mysql_connect ("localhost", "username", "secret")
        or die ("Could not connect");
    print ("Connected successfully");
    mysql_close ($link);


I've tried both PHP 3 and PHP 4, both give me this error....

Your system must be severely fucked up because in the
precompiled binaries provided at the mysql
support is you can NOT be without mysql_connect()..

Follow the instructions given in install.txt and all
should be fine. 

Anyway, this is NOT a bug in PHP but you have done something
