If you are encountering an issue with the PHP_pgsql.dll not loading on Windows, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem.
Step 1: Check PHP Configuration
Make sure that the PHP_pgsql.dll extension is enabled in your PHP configuration file (php.ini). Look for a line that reads:
If this line is commented out with a semicolon (;), remove the semicolon to enable the extension. If the line is not present, add it to the file.
Step 2: Check PHP_pgsql.dll File Location
Ensure that the PHP_pgsql.dll file is located in the correct directory. By default, it should be in the
ext folder of your PHP installation directory.
Step 3: Check PHP Version and Architecture
Verify that you have the correct version and architecture (32-bit or 64-bit) of PHP_pgsql.dll for your PHP installation. If you are running a 64-bit version of PHP, make sure that you are using the 64-bit version of the extension.
Step 4: Check PostgreSQL Installation
Ensure that PostgreSQL is installed and configured correctly on your Windows machine. The PHP_pgsql.dll extension requires the PostgreSQL client libraries to function properly. Make sure that the libraries are installed and available in your system's PATH environment variable.
