Cannot install it.

I used various open source tools, but this one is the most frustrating to me.

I am installing Omeka 1.1 on PhP 5.2.10, MySQL 5, and Apache 2 on Windows XP.

First I encountered .htaccess which makes index.php in root and install directory fibidden to use. Got that fixed. Then saw the install page. Filled out all info and click Install button. Always got "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error.

Went to mysql database and saw collections, data_types, and elements table.

Went to home page, always got error:
Omeka Has Encountered an Error
The Mysqli extension is required for this adapter but the extension is not loaded

Did a phpinfo() test and it did show mysqli installed. If not, how could the three tables created?

Thanks for any help!

Omeka requires a LAMP stack. It may be possible to get Omeka to work on Windows, but we do not support it. Let us know however, if you are able to make it work on Windows. Some other users are tried making it work on Windows:
