– Solution –
This usually occurs when more than one MySQL versions are being used and that too when switching b/w them.
open php.ini and search for ‘extension_dir’ and check whether the files and folders exist in the given path and the right version number folder.
extension_dir = “c:/wamp/bin/php/php<version number>/ext/”
if you have made any changes, then restart all services and check phpmyadmin, if it doesn’t work try…
open php.ini and uncomment the following lines in php.ini if any by removing the ‘#’ at the beginning of the line.
Check phpmyadmin, it should be working now :).
