Dependency problems with phpMyadmin in SuSE 8.2


I know this has got to be something really simple, but I googled and searched and I couldn't quite find what I was looking for.

One month into Linux so I am a pretty sizable newb, and a complete newb with mySQL. I installed mySQL with little fuss, and I'm trying to get phpMyAdmin to work. However, I'm in dependency hell. SuSE 8.2 tells me I'm missing http_daemon and php. I would have thought at least http_daemon, in my limited understanding, would be included with SuSE. I looked on the disks and SuSE's website, and couldn't find files with these names (but SuSE's search function stinks).

Does anyone know where I could get these, preferably in rpm format? I tried using the -nodep option with the rpm, but it still doesn't have appeared to have installed. I'm not exactly sure what's going on here. I suppose I could use another GUI, but my professor is really into phpMyadmin and I'm confused enough in class as it is...

thanks so much (and please don't hit me)

Edit: It DID install with nodep, but unfortunately, won't run. So I'm assuming I need those two dependencies.

To install phpMyAdmin you need Apache (httpd), php and mod_php. I'm sure they are included in SuSE. Try to search for httpd instead of http_daemon. Or Apache.

Okay, I installed Apache and PHP, no problems. I even reinstalled phpMyAdmin. Now when I try to get phpMyAdmin to run, it for some reason won't. I don't know whether I'm invoking something wrong or what... I am in KDE, and I hit the "run command" line, and I type in phpMyAdmin. It gives me the error, "Can not run specified command". So I tried it as root, and still no dice. I tried with different cases and everything. No luck.

phpMyAdmin is clearly in the /srv/www/htdocs/phpMyAdmin path (incidentally, this looks to be where KDE tries to run it. Should this be?) I know it's got to be something really minor I need to tweak, but I've tried fiddling with stuff all morning to no avail. How do I actually RUN the dang thing? It's defied everything my newb brain has learned thus far about Linux...


oh yeah, installed this from an rpm... I don't know if that will make a difference.
