Slackware and phpBB2


I was just wondering if anyone has experience installing phpBB2 on a Slackware server. I get the following message when trying to install.

"The PHP configuration on your server doesn't support the database type that you chose"

From what I have read in other forums, this means that I need to have extensions=mysql.so uncommented in the php.ini file. I do infact have this line uncommented, but still no luck.

If anyone has any experience installing phpBB2 in Slackware help would be appreciated.

Thanks

"The PHP configuration on your server doesn't support the database type that you chose" And what type of database did you choose? Mysql sure ? Have you mysql package installed, mysql server configured ?

Yes it's MySQL 4
php 4.3.7

I am serving up web php web pages here is my php info, and I have created the database I want to use for my board. I'm at a loss as to what is wrong. I was just curious if LNO'ers have had success in installing phpBB in Slackware.

I'm sure it's a security issue but I am using root as the user of the database. I'll create another user and give it try.

Most probably the mysql module is not loaded in php, hence php cant interact with mysql... i had almost the same problem, check my post, it might help
