[solved]how to add mysql to php5 connectivity issues


Hi,

I have php5, mysql5, and apache2 installed on Suse 10 and need to figure out how to get the mysql extension into whatever file I need it entered into in php5 so that I can access mysql with php.

My php.info page does not show any mysql support in the text so that means that I have to add it. I have been looking for a week now at every forum I can think of and found that adding "--with mysql=Path/to/mysql"
I can't find anything about where to add it or to what file to add it to.

Can anyone tell me where I need to put mysql support info for PHP. I mean, do I need to put it in some php file or a apache file or what??

You either need to recompile PHP or find a precompiled binary somewhere that has MySQL support compiled in. The "--with-mysql=path" bit is an argument to the ./configure command when recompiling PHP. (Small note, if you do recompile PHP make sure to add "--with-apxs=pathtoapxs", too.)

I have to recompile PHP? I thought there was a way that I could add the "--with-mysql" statement to some file or something and then just restart php.

Unfortunately, recompilation is the only way. I find it easiest to compile PHP and Apache myself, and use the binary off MySQL's official site, because of things like this, though there shouldn't be anything wrong with using the Apache and MySQL packages for your distro unless they're outdated or something.

I guess we can mark this thread as solved for now.

I was having problems with Suse10.1 so I ended up just dumping the whole works and reloading FC5 and downloaded Xampp, and am going from there.

Thanks for the help though,
