i tried to move it to /var/www/htdocs/forum but it's still giving me the same error..
By the way, i also changed the doc_root of the php.ini file to /var/www (not sure if that was necessary..?)
In the error_log, i see that when i restart apache, it gives a warning:
[Sun Jun 20 00:17:42 2004] [notice] SIGUSR1 received. Doing graceful restart
PHP Warning: Unknown(): Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php/extensions/mysql.so' - libmysqlclient.so.12: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0
[Sun Jun 20 00:17:45 2004] [notice] Apache/1.3.28 (Unix) PHP/4.3.3 configured -- resuming normal operations
The file "mysql.so" is in that directory, i don't see why it can't find it. It is also loaded by default in php.ini.
edit: i can't go to http://localhost
since i didn't install any graphical interface, but the web server works fine for any html document.
