ok, here we go: i upgraded mysql from 3.23.58 to 4.0.16, everything went smoothly and all that. php works fine, after testing some echo's and such...now, i did a phpinfo(); to check the mysql section to see that php recognized the new version, and ouch...it doesn't. still reading 3.23.58. so, i grab the source rpm and rebuild it from the ground up (after cleaning out the appropriate dirs). goes without a hitch, until i restart apache and check phpinfo() again, and man, still reading 3.23.58. i've checked all over the place, and the module for php-mysql integration was included in the source rpm that i already compiled! so what's the deal?
to add to the confusion, phpmyadmin works FINE and even displays the correct version of mysql. what a paradox!
also, i've eliminated the fact that i could be viewing a cached file...many times over (even viewing from a M$ box on the LAN thats never even touched my server)
any help would be much appreciated, check out the sig for the stats of this box
