Description of problem: In a LAMP setup, I cannot connect to the mysql
database. I have tried this same setup repeatedly in Core 2 without a
problem. In Core 3, the exact same setup of Apache, mysql, and php
just doesn't work. My browser connects to the server, and will display
the php_info page, but I can't connect to mysql using the same code
the works well with Redhat, Core1 and Core2. Has there been some
change in this configuration that requires me to do something new???
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Using php 4.3.9, mysql 3.23.58, kernel 2.6.9-1.667 on i686, Core 3
How reproducible: I've reinstalled twice and tried the same setup
twice - same problem. When I go back to Core2, this same setup works
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Core3
2. set up apache server
3. try to access mysql using typical php code
Actual results: can't access mysql database
Expected results: it should access the database
Additional info: works with Core2 - multiple attempts to set up have
failed. Multiple back-pedaling to Core2 has worked. Clearly, some
change in the Core 3 setup is causing this problem.
The usual problem is that you need to do:
# yum install php-mysql
on the FC3 box.
