phpMyadmin problem
 
Hi there, i am very new to linux and am using Fedora core 2. i am trying to get phpmyadmon to work. i have downloaded it, and save it to my home directory, which is where apache is pointing at. however, when i try to access it i am getting the following error:
"cannot load mysql extension,
please check PHP Configuration
Documentation"

i am pretty sure that apache, mysql and php are running correctly.

any help that anyone can give me would be hugely appreciated.#

thanks,

Check your php.ini file and make sure its configured to use mysql. If that doesn't work or its already setup, most likely php wasn't compiled with mysql support or doesn't have the php-mysql package installed. That's what you should check first.

What is your output of: rpm -qa | grep php

even if mysql is properly installed, it must be running ; to launch it just type
"/sbin/service mysqld start" as root in a console
