Question phpmyadmin "Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration"

When I attempt to visit the phpmyadmin index page i.e.


I get: Cannot load mysql extension. Please check your PHP configuration.
error message

Now, I assume that 'mysql extension' and PHP MySQL package are actually the same thing, but different names.

Using synaptic debian package manager I can see that I have php5-mysql installed so I should not be getting the above error message.

I suspect that phpmyadmin has made an assumption about the path location of the PHP MySQL package so all I need to do is find how/where phpmyadmin looks for the PHP MySQL package.

Can you advise me where the phpmyadmin settings are stored?
