php-mysql-4.2.2-8.0.7 RPM issues, should I switch to redhat 9?

I have redhat 8 currently installed, with php 4.2.2 version 8.0.7, apache and mysql 4.0. I need to be able to use the mysql with php. Of course the issue is that I need to be able to install the php-mysql-4.2.2-8.0.7 RPM, but it requires The mysql-shared for 4.0 doesn't have the, and now has

I did a lot of searching for how to get around this, and have found a lot of people with the same problem, but no fix. The only suggestion I've found is to uninstall the mysql-shared and install an older version, but keep the current mysql-client and server.

Could this be right? It doesn't seem so.

My other issue is that I have a bit of a time limit. This is for work and has to happen quickly - it's already taking me a lot longer than I'm comfortable with. One of my collegues was told that if you do a full install of the redhat 9, it will come perfectly configured with everything working right off the bat - apache, php, sql all working together seamlessly.

If this is really true, then will someone please verify. If so, I've wasted alot of time already.

I just wanted to post my fix in case anyone else finds this message with the same issue.

Instead of installing MySQL-shared-4.0.10.i386.rpm, I had to install the MySQL-shared-compat-4.0.10.i386 which contains all the library files for both the 3.23 and 4.0.

This is everything I installed for MySQL:


Redhat 9 also doesn't come with the newest MySQL if anyone was wondering. Although, after spending way too long on setting up apache,php,mysql and ftp server, I am still wondering if there is such a thing as an installation that does it all for you with no need to configure.

On the bright side, I'm feeling much less like a newbie, and happy that I finally have the test server up and running!!
