How do I install php-mysql support?


I have php, MySql, and Apache installed and running. I can use php, up to the point when I call the mysql_pconnect function. I believe this means that I do not have php-mysql support installed.

Which package do I need to install, and where can I find it? (I'm hoping it's on one of the RedHat 8.0 CD's)

I've browsed the categories in the Package Manager, looking for something like php-mysql; unfortunately, I had no luck. If it's in there, and I'm just overlooking it, please clue me on which category/item name it's under.

Thank you, so much!

It will be on the CD but here is the updated version from rpmfind.net
ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/updat...8.0.7.i386.rpm

Download it and run
rpm -ivh /path/to/php-mysql-4.2.2-8.0.7.i386.rpm

If you mean the graphical version - then yes - I usually just give the command line method as it is easier to type.

Hello Joseph,

and I don't mean to be curt, but there's
been about 20 threads in the last two
weeks covering this topic. Would you
mind using LQ's extensive search feature
before asking this question?

Cheers,
Tink

Okay, here's what I was looking for, but couldn't find in the other posts:

No, there is no "Click here becuase you have an brand new package you want to instal" button in the Package Manager program. It's actually easier than that: Double click on the .rpm file, and RedHat takes care of the installation process for you. All I need to do is click Okay and watch the status bar.

I was looking for this method of installation becuase working with the rpm, configure, and MakeFile commands makes me want to jump out the window (no, I don't live in a one-story building).
