yum install php-mysql fails with mysql 5.1 - "Error: mysql conflicts with MySQL"
I can't figure this out.
I've installed MySQL 5.1.32 (client and server).
I've used the standard PHP (5.1.6) and Apache (2.2.3) that came with the OS.
Wanting PHP to talk to MySQL, I try:
yum install php-mysql
I get the error:
Error: mysql conflicts with MySQL
(I wish I could just run the PHP configure command '--with-mysql',but have no idea how to do that with yum.)
I don't know whether the problem is obvious or not. The driver's version is lower than the installed mysql server and client. So I think there are 2 clean solutions possible:
1. Install everything from source
2. Install everything with your distro's packet manager
Personally I recommend the first as it gives you more freedom in the long run.
I was hoping for a third option.
I chose #2 for now just to keep it easy. I'm back on MySQL 5.0 for now. When I find the time, I'll probably go with route #1 to get the advantages of the newer software, such as security bug fixes.
