MySQL and Perl


It's been a while now that i am trying to install to project on a server. Those project requires Mysql and php.
Installing mysql requiere a perl module (again those dependencies...)
When i do: rpm -aq, it shows me a lot of perl stuff... but how do i know that it is running? Doing ps -A don't show me any perl process.
Also, if it is not running, how do i bring it up?
thx

It installed all package except one: mysql-bench-3.23.46-1.i386.rpm telling me that it failed dependencies mysql-DBI-perl-bin, this package is not on redhat site or mysql site. there are similar name but how the hek do i know witch package to use.

Perl doesn't run as a service.

type perl -v and if perl responds with a version number you're all set from a perl perspective. You'll need the dbi modules to use perl with mysql.

Goto mysql.org, the downloads section. You need more than one module., data-dumper, show table and dbi I think.

You can also check cpan.org
