    Hi. This is driving me insane, so any help is welcome!!

    I'm running a test server (Apache 2.2), with PHP 5.2.16. I've also downloaded MySQL and configured PHP to it, all on Windows Vista. I've then downloaded and set up phpMyAdmin, to manage my databases (as I don't have a clue how to do that otherwise!) but when I go to the phpmyadmin login page it comes up with the error: "Cannot load mcrypt extension. Please check your PHP configuration."

    I've had a good look on the net and tried everything and I still can't get it to work! So this is what I've tried and if anyone knows of anything I haven't done that I could try then that would be great!

    - In my php.ini file I took the comma away on the line: extension=php_mcrypt.dll
    - I changed these lines: /$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'radtimes'; & /$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie'; in Apaches config.inc file.
    - I've copied: libmcrypt.dll : into my php/ext file.
    - I've copied : libmcrypt.dll into Windows/system32
    - I've gone into System/Environment variables and added my PHP root files to the Path setting.
    - I've reloaded Apache after each change and restarted the comp after each stage.
