Trouble following Install Instructions (PHP-MYSQL)


I have a D-Link DNS-323 Network Attached Storage box which runs Linux as a hidden OS. I have installed fun_plug, which is a plugin which gives access to the Linux OS via ssh and telnet.

I'm trying to setup the lighttpd web server on the box and have actually had it working already including PHP. However, I needed to install MySQL next and when following these instructions, they made me uninstall PHP first.

While following those instructions, all went well until I got to the bit (after running the installer), where it says,

Quote:
Copy my.cnf from the examples directory
cp /ffp/etc/examples/my.cnf /ffp/etc/.
When I checked in /ffp/etc/examples/ the my.cnf file was nowhere to be seen. I searched the whole system and it doesn't seem to exist.

At this point, as a fairly newcomer to Linux, I don't know what to try next. Can someone point me in the right direction please?

I think you better download a binary version of mysqld from mysql.com and follow the INSTALL file. PHP must be recompiled with --with-mysql option. Good luck!

The trouble is that the fun_plug Linux installation appears to not be a full and standard installation of Linux and I'm not sure that I can install standard packages. I think they have to have been recompiled specifically for a the NAS box with fun_plug.
