config. of mysql on fresh redhat 9 install?


well, i recently decided to changed my HTTP and FTP server from a pentium pro 200mhz with win2000pro to a proper redhat9 (...so it doesnt crash so much) install, using apache, vsftpd, php and mysql on a P3 450mhz.
All is going well... apache is working, a test.php shows php is doing fine and the ftp also works, all pretty much straight out of the box. however, when trying to install phpbb it does not seem to be able to even find a databse, or mysql.
i know in the php.ini im supposed to tell it extension=mysql.so, i also know this is different in redhat as it keeps these extension config. files in a different place, so i put extension=mysql.so in these two files, and it doesn't seem to work.
i restarted mysql and apache, still no success. i am wondering if it is infact mysql.so or is it something different? also how am i to configure the different oprions in mysql, considering this is a fresh redhat9 install. thank you for reading
