PHP + MySQL Integration issue

If any one can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

I have installed MySQL 4.0.17 via RPM's from

I am trying to install PHP 4.3.4 from source. My problem is that im not sure what path to specify for the MySQL integration.

When I run the configure script with the --with-mysql argument
i get a message saying "You chose to compile PHP with the built-in MySQL support . . ."

According to the documentation @ it says that rpm's are installed to /var/lib/mysql

I tried this and I get the same result.

Is there anywhere else I should point to in the config script?

Please help.

Im running Redhat 9.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I asked this on another forum and got flamed for being a newbie, and not using the setup out of the box from Redhat. You guys are a better crowd here anyways.

I have a good step-by-step tutorial on installing a LAMPSSL (Linux+Apache+Mysql+PHP+SSL).

You can skip some installation depending on what you really want to install.
