Apache & Php & MySql
I'm looking for an opinion...
I have apache, php, perl, mysql all running fine on my rh7.1 box. I want to use mysql with php but the rpms did not build it with the mysql option enabled. All the docs I read say to reinstall php and apache with the source files (SRPM) and enable mysql.
I can't find any instructions on how to just rebuild php to create a new module that includes mysql (seems pretty odd)
I'm nervous about loosing apache, perl and everthing else that works ok now. The redhat source srpms' also put the binaries in differnet directories than the original install (/usr/local/.. vs /usr/share/..).
Should I remove the php and apache rpms and re-install from srpms or plain tar files? I've only done a couple of installs, none over exisiting, working code.
