I have php mysql and apache installed on linux redhat 9. My problem is that there seems to be another version of php running with apache. I have searched the computer and have not found any other versions. I have deleted the file and reinstalled php a bunch of times and nothing seems to be working. What file could be causing this? I wan't to avoid reinstalling apache if possible. My apache version is 2 the php version is 4.2.2 and mysql version is 4. The reason I include mysql in this is becuase if I go into my servers error logs I notice the following PHP

PHP Warning:  Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php4/' - /usr/lib/ symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file with link time reference in Unknown on line 0
Now if I go into the command line and do stuff with php there are no errors at all everything's working fine. Any ideas what's going on here?

It appears that your PHP is built with the mysql included, but you don't have the MySql installed.

Create this file (lets name it to PhpInfo.php) with the following:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Then on your webbrowser, type in (provided your apache and what not are are installed):


This shoud give you your current php configuration, post it here.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that you need to copy the PhpInfo.php to your apache's document root.

I believe it was installed via rpm. One of the things thats stumping me is there is no apxs file in /usr/sbin.
mysql is definitly installed. The problem I am having is that apache seems to be using a different version of php that I can't find anywhere on the harddrive. Or I suppose something got fouled up. The reason I think apache is using a different version is whenever I make changes with anything relating to php the changes don't seem to get updated in the phpinfo file. I have changed the php version itself and nothing happened. I have moved the file and everything still worked.

It looked like the php was built with everything under the sun, except the mysql .

I don't know the version of the apache, but you could check either of these two link for the php installation:

version 1:


version 2:

I don't know what version of the apache that you are running, but from the --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs line, the php expects the apache2.

So there is one way out, but you take you some times (but hey, this is fun ) is to rebuild apache 2, mysql and then php (the last), according to the 2nd link's instructions above.

From, download the stable version (the stand 4.0.20 is good). Follow the installation, when you do the configure, make sure you do this:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql

This will put your mysql user /usr/local. You could use other place if you prefer.

Then when you are ready to ./configure the php, copy everything you have from your previous config (make sure to remove all the single quote ', and add these two:

--with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql

(which assume you build the apache at /usr/local).

Note: when you build the apache, make sure you do this:

./configure --enable-so

This is telling apache to use the php and mysql's so.

In all, study the instructiosn in the php's link above before proceeding.

Good luck.
