I am trying to install http://www.dotproject.net which uses php and mySql. I have 9.2 lamp installed and running. It seems I need php to have mysql support installed... or maybe it's the other way around.
I think you need a package called php_mysql (or ssomething similar) or mod_php depending on the version of apache you are using. You can install them using urpmi/rpmdrake if you don't have them already installed.
i did urpmi mod_php, it gave :
To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed (0 MB):

Shutting down httpd2: [ OK ]
Checking configuration sanity for Apache 2.0: [ OK ]
Starting httpd2: [ OK ]
But unfortunately, php still can't find the MySql database connector.
Thanks for the help. Still trying to figure this out.... tom.
To check apache run ' service httpd status' or surf to the computer and see if it answers.
To check php, put this <?php phpinfo(); ?> in the file /var/www/html/test.php, chmod the file 755 and surf to your-computer/test.php
If that doesn't work make sure you have "AddType application/x-httpd-php .php" in /etc/httpd/conf/commonhttpd.conf
and "LoadModule php4_module" and "AddModule mod_php4.c" in etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
