PHP Connecting MySQL to PHP using MySQLi


New Coder
Hello. I am on Windows using the latest version of PHP and MySQL. I run PHP through a localhost in the command prompt. I type in -S localhost:4000 to create a server and then run PHP on localhost:4000. I also have MySQL tables and databases in the MySQL command line client. I am trying to link my database and table in MySQL to my PHP using MySQLi. I believe that the MySQLi extension is disabled as it is not recognizing the MySQLi function in PHP. I have tried to uncomment the extension in Notepad by removing the semicolon but it does not work. Does anyone know how to activate the MySQLi extension given my current situation. I am also willing to use PDO if that is easier to activate. Thank you.
