Thank you that worked.
Do you recommend upgrading to a newer version of PHP or would that possibly make it incompatible with my version of MySQL.
I have my local server working on IIS instead of MAXAMP.
I did this because I still need to use IIS for development.
I found a great article on how to do this called Installing PHP 5.2.3, MySql 5.0, IIS 6.0 on Windows XP install_php_mysql_iis.html
This works perfectly but I am worried about changing things since it works.
