Setting up MediaWiki on Windows 2003

Today my boss mentioned that it would be nice to have a Wiki for documentation purposes here at work. I figured I would spend some time and after about an hour I got the following error:

  • PHP 5.2.1 installed
  • Could not find a suitable database driver!
  • For MySQL, compile PHP using --with-mysql, or install the module

This is my first time attempting to install PHP on a Windows 2003 server. It's also the first time I'm attempting to install MySQL on a Windows 2003 server. I'll append a fix to this post as soon as I figure it out. Also I'll attempt a full tutorial after I get everything working correctly.
