MySQL - PHP5 - phpMyAdmin 2.6.0


a slackware 10 box with default apache and php

well.. i upgrade to PHP5 & apache 2 with packages from " linuxpackages " and , now when i enter the phpmyadmin ( phpMyAdmin 2.6.0 ) folder i get


cannot load mysql extension,
please check PHP Configuration
<Documentation>


..and follow the link gives..


[1.20] I receive the error "cannot load MySQL extension, please check PHP Configuration".

To connect to a MySQL server, PHP needs a set of MySQL functions called "MySQL extension". This extension may be part of the PHP distribution (compiled-in), otherwise it needs to be loaded dynamically. Its name is probably mysql.so or php_mysql.dll. phpMyAdmin tried to load the extension but failed.

Usually, the problem is solved by installing a software package called "PHP-MySQL" or something similar


the line in config.inc.php i phpmyadmin:
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysql'; // The php MySQL extension to use ('mysql' or 'mysqli')
cant find info about mysql.so in other files
i am clueless..

in php.ini

changed

; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "./"

to

; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "/usr/lib/php/extensions/"

and added the line

extension=mysql.so

dont know if its the right way but it works
