Where can I get detailed info regarding how to configure and use Apache along with PHP. I have Red Hat 8.0 and have installed Apache Server and PHP thats available in the packages. Also are there any GUI tools available to configure them or do I need to edit files and if so which files are those.
MySQL is already configured and I am able to use it.
That worked. Thanks. Now I need to fix this issue.
I got a simple site made in PHP and MySQL and is running perfect. I have hosted it locally in Win 98 using PHPTriad. Now when I take the same to the Linux, I get the main page displayed. However when I try to login, nothing happens. I get no errors either. The login details are stored in a config.php file.
Also after a successful login, I have a script to create the tables for the application. The database has to be created beforehand or can be created through the script itself.
How do I check whether my PHP is configured for MySQL or not ?
PS. kindly note that I had installed Apache, PHP and MySQL as available in the packages from the installation disks during the setup itself. I haven't compiled them myself. MySQL is working fine, I say this because I can login to it and create databases and tables.
Thanks again. Doesn't the PHP-MySQL package get automatically installed when I have selected all MySQL and PHP components available from the installation disks or is it separately available for download.
