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.
