Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I recently installed Slackware 10. Apache 1.3.31 and PHP 4.3.7 have been installed already. I configured the httpd.conf and the php.ini and the server works. Afterwards I downloaded the MySQL 4.0.20 binaries, and got the MySQL server running as well. Output of ps aux:
I downloaded phpMyAdmin 2.5.7 PL1, configured it and tried to connect to the my MySQL server. The error message is:
cannot load MySQL extension,
please check PHP Configuration.
In the php.ini the extension_dir is set correctly:
extension_dir = "/usr/lib/php/extensions/"
the extension is loaded:
And the file mysql.so is placed in /usr/lib/php/extensions/. Unfortunately I have no clue where the problem is. The weird things is that also phpinfo() doesn't show any MySQL information. The configure command is:
After some more reading it seems to be a problem with the libmysqladmin.so.12. The problem is, I don't have that file on my system. It seems that I don't even have the client libraries, at least I don't have the /usr/lib/mysql folder. I downloaded the Linux (x86, libc6) Standard binaries, unpacked them to /usr/local/mysql and created the mysql table with scripts/mysql_install_db. So, did I miss someting or is there anything more to download?
The PHP package you got was compiled with a shared library version of MySQL, but the version you have is static. So you either have to recompile PHP against your current MySQL, or compile and install MySQL from the source.
