Configuring Apache, PHP AND mySql
In another thread I was looking at which mySQL installation I should use for my system (red hat 9) as Apache and PHP were pre-installed.
I decided on the binaries package and installed it. I've been really stuck ever since.
I installed it using the instructions provided, but from the first time I ran it its been nothing but a hassle. I cant stop it for one thing. I rebooted and it wasnt running, but then for some reason I cant run the files anymore. I go to the directory where it is installed and run mysqld_safe as instructed in the documentation and it just says bash: mysqld_safe: command not found. I can see it though ... its in the directory I am calling it from.
I can get Webmin to start it and stop it on occasion, but not always.
I logged in as root and got the same thing.
Then, I found that php isn't loading the mysql libraries so I cant access any databases through PHP which was the prupose of the whole excersise.
I'm just stumped guys ... I really am. Can anybody throw be a line here?
