MySql-Php install

Working as an intern for a DSHS office. I was installing MySql, only got to the ./configure stage, it stopped at a line which looks like it states the date-time and mysqld ended. This was very shortly after conf started, looks like just after a test of the daemon. It stopped at a blank prompt and just hung until I hit enter and then returned to the root prompt. Definitely no makefile made. I'm new to linux, installed Debian in class, along with MySql and Php. Using RH 6 now because of a Token Ring nic and no other available(funds). Php installed fine, however when I did the configuring on php.ini I could not find the DirectoryIndex line mentioned on the instruction page(SitePoint's).
I'm installing MySql 3.23.51 and Php 4.2.1.
I'm wondering if the older RedHat could be causing some problems. Apache came from the old disc set, rpm.
Any and all help is appreciated greatly.
Thanks Pat

Try running ./configure in debug mode so you can see the test that fails. 'sh -x ./configure'. This will be very verbose any you will need some scripting knowedge to understand the output.
I remember I had a similar problem when I built it as well. I think one file had a newer date than another that it didn't expect. I don't remember the specifics, but if you can debug the script you figure the problem out.

mysqld is the deamon to startd Mysql?
Please post the actuall errror messages.

Your can also use ./configure |tee config.log
make |tee make.log

to log the output

or ./configure 2> config.errors

to only log errors.

Also post messages re: mysql to mysql mailing list.

Directory Index is located in httpd.conf RH installs
it under /etc/httpd/conf.

It should read sonething like this:

index.html index.php

There should also be a AddType line
for php stuff
