php cant connet to mysql host
I got Redhat9 installed on my server with an aim to support Apache Triad. Since the package already comes with php4.2.2/ Apache2.040 / MySql3.23.54a. Everything seems to be okey except php/mysql connectivity, the error message I got from phpMyAdmin was that php seemed unable to load the 'mysql.so' from the system.
I then tried to locate this mysql.so, I got this from the perl5 folder and have it copied to this directory 'extension=/usr/lib/php4/' but that doesnt help at all.
Also, from the php test script, I saw --with mysql=share,/usr. Does it mean that mysql already complied and should be working well with php without the need to dynamically load the mysql.so.
Can someone help to advise if anything is missed out to get it works?
Thanks in advance.
