Question php and mysql installation


Hey i was wondering how to set up the apache server with php, mysql and phpMyAdmin on redhat9
These are the rpms i have (not even sure if their installed properly)

phpMyAdmin-2.5.4-php.tar.gz
mysql-server-3.23.58-1.9.i386.rpm
php-devel-4.2.2-17.2.i386.rpm
php-mysql-4.2.2-17.2.i386.rpm
mysql-standard-4.0.15-pc-linux-i686.tar.gz

Any help would be much appreciated.
I may have to uninstall some of these but i don't know. I got all this working in windows with easyphp but i much prefer linux.
thanks

Check what is installed - post the output of:
rpm -qa | grep httpd
rpm -qa | grep php
rpm -qa | grep mysql

//install mysql server+client:
//first check if mysql is already installed:
#>rpm -q MySQL
//if none are installed:
#> rpm -i MySQL-server-VERSION.i386.rpm MySQL-client-VERSION.i386.rpm
//uninstall rpms like
#>rpm -e MySQL //or something. (better way is to use your systems package manager!)

apache+php:
//create dirs
#>mkdir /usr/local/apache
#>mkdir /usr/local/php

//download packages into these dirs (apache to ../apache, php to ../php)
</usr/local/apache#>tar -xvzf apache-VERSION.tar.gz
apache-VERSION#>cd apache-VERSION
apache-VERSION#>./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-module=so
apache-VERSION#>make
apache-VERSION#>make install

open file /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf -> edit ServerName and ServerAdmin (i guess you know how)
Start apache:
#>/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

if http://127.0.0.1 works then install PHP

<usr/local/php#>tar -xvzf php-VERSION.tar.gz
php#>cd php-VERSION
php#>./configure --enable-ftp --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs
php#>make
php#>make install

now stop apache -> /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl stop
edit httpd.conf again to set the lines

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

Action application...something

//edit what you'd like and know how.

//start the apache again and there you go!

//to make it start at boot time:
#>cd /etc/rc.d/rc3.d
rc3.d#>ln -s /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd S85httpd

the number after rc3 depends on in what run level you're running your system (or something like that).

For a complete HOW-TO check the LAMPS site: http://lamps.efactory.de/
it's in german and english!

OK.

Look at httpd.conf and move phpMyAdmin-2.5.4-php.tar.gz to the directory specified as DocumentRoot then extract the phpmyadmin files:
tar -xzf phpMyAdmin-2.5.4-php.tar.gz

Then make sure apache is running:
service httpd restart

Then try and access it:
http://ip.of.web.server/phpMyAdmin/

I think my apache2 (httpd) is preinstalled on my redhat9 under /sbin/service ??? Do i need to uninstall from here? and then do what you said?

Righteo sorry about this I just did what david ross said and i get ...
------------------------------
cannot load MySQL extension,
please check PHP Configuration.
Documentation
------------------------------

The documentation url is.... http://127.0.0.1/phpMyAdmin/Documentation.html#faqmysql
Which says
-----------------------------
[1.20] I receive the error "cannot load MySQL extension, please check PHP Configuration".

To connect to a MySQL server, PHP needs a set of MySQL functions called "MySQL extension". This extension may be part of the PHP distribution (compiled-in), otherwise it needs to be loaded dynamically. Its name is probably mysql.so or php_mysql.dll. phpMyAdmin tried to load the extension but failed.

Usually, the problem is solved by installing a software package called "PHP-MySQL" or something similar.
--------------------------

Well you have that installed but it may be a different version since you installed mysql from source. Try creating a php info page called phpinfo.php:
Code:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Then call it through your browser and see what it says about mysql.

The only thing it says about mySql is
--------------------------------
dbx
----
dbx support enabled
----
dbx version 1.0.0
----
supported databases:
MySQL
ODBC
PostgreSQL
Microsoft SQL Server
FrontBase
Oracle 8 (not really)
Sybase-CT

No other mention of MySQL. So does this mean MySQL isn't installed?
