Edward,

Can you list the contents of /usr/local
Can you list the contents of /usr/local/apache
Can you list the contents of /usr/local/apache/log
Can you list the contents of /usr/local/apache/conf

What distro do you use ? RH 8

Does there exists a scripts dir on your machine?

Yes, the previous setup works as I can see phpinfo.php. I am now re-installing. Will get back once I have completed the installation. Will let you know the setup and if encounter any problem thereafter to see how to resolve my problems.

Hi Dave

Okay. I have completed the re-installation and now the phpinfo is showing the detail when runs. I will continue to setup the database [mysql] and see if php can get info from mysql as the last time I was unable to do so. BTW, is there any way that I can test the link between php and mysql ? I have loaded in the php-mysql.

Regards
Edward Han

Hi Edward,

Sorry for the delay, but currently I'm trying to build a new server I just bought from somebody...it eats a lot of time...anyway:

Yes there is, but you should do this with php code, I asssume that the database is on the same machine ...

<?php
$ mysql_link = mysql_connect ("127.0.0.1", "mysqlusername", "mysqlpassword");
$ testresult = mysql_select_db ( "testdb" ,$mysql_link);
$query="select * test_table";
$ mysql_result = mysql_query ($query,$mysql_link);
if ( mysql_num_rows ($mysql_result)>0){
print "Yes I've found a matching row!";
}

Make a database named testdb
make a table in the database named test_table
In that table make a row with a name what ever you like, and put some data in it, it doesn't ,matter what kind of data (text)

Then run the php file and if it find data, it should say: Yes I've found a matching row!

The easyest way to manage a mysql database, is controll it by web. Download phpMyAdmin

Hope this helps

Hi

A few questions about MySQL that I have encountered problems now.

I have installed too many versions of mysql in my system like:

1. version 3.23.57 that comes with RH8.0
2. Install using rpm version 4.0.0-1
3. version 4.0.15

Now it is in a mess as I can't run it.

Before that, when I install 4.0.15, I tried to execute mysqladmin -u root password 'newpassword', it gave this error:

mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL Server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists!

So, can I remove all the versions of MySQL so that I can do a fresh installation ??

Thanks!

Regards
Edward Han

Hmm actually I never had something like this before. But de-install them one by one and then install the lastest version of mysql by using rpm. Correct me if i'm wrong but ain't it possible to update a rpm package, so you'll never have more than one version within RH ?

Anyway ...before trying mysqladmin -u root password 'newpassword', start the database first with: mysqld_safe &

Hi

I have this weird problem when executing the php to access mysql. First of all, I have defined the path to mysql.sock to be at: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock but when I execute the php to link with the database, it keeps saying cannot connect as it cannot find the path to /tmp/mysql.sock .... why is this so? i have defined it in my.cnf. I tried to run the phpMyAdmin, it says the same thing.

Any idea?

Regards
Edward Han

I was a bit confused myself, looked up the good word book:

Parse error: an error that manifests when miscommunications has occured between one or more parties, commonly occurs in marriages or similar situations.

Does the database run at all?
Please print the output of: ps aux |grep mysql
