my PHP installation says no MySQL support

Dear friends,

I am trying to configure a knowledgetree document management system. Before I used mysql 3.23 was fine. but since I upgraded MySQl-client and MySQl-server to 4.1.12-1 I have got the installation checklist stating my php no MySQL support. I don't udnerstand that since I can service start mysql and the database is running.

once I downgrade to mysql3.23 everything works fine.
Don't understand why....please help me with this....the following is what is stated in my installaton checklist:

PHP version and extensions

This relates to your PHP installation environment - which version of PHP you are running, and which modules are available.
PHP version 4.0 or above Yes
PHP version 4.3 or above Yes
PHP version below 5 Yes
Session support Available
MySQL support Unavailable
Gettext support Available
Fileinfo support Unavailable

thanks for taking time reading my mail....

i dont know but maybe php needs a new driver to communicate with the new mysql and therefore needs to be built fresh...
did u install mysql and php from source or rpm?
good luck

Hi there,

thanks for your reply.

I installed from rpms.

I used the mysql, php etc from distribution before, it works fine. But after I used these rpms it gives me this trouble.

j-ray is right, you will need a version of php compiled for the right mysql version. Update php rpm's too, or build from source.
