Description Justin Wiley 2005-07-28 12:24:45 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.9) Gecko/20050711 Firefox/1.0.5

Description of problem:
php-mysql object libraries are not installed by default when performing a standard server or custom installation of Fedora (any version I believe).  As a result, someone attempting to create a standard LAMP server will see an error when using PHP scripts with functions such as "mysql_connect".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Begin Fedora installation
2.Select Server type
3.Specify specific packages and choose MySQL database

Actual Results:  I have a LAMP server where P does not speak to M.  I have to be wise enough to interpret the error message coming back from PHP, and then manually install the RPM with the correct RPM

Expected Results:  Whenever MySQL and Apache and PHP are all selected, the php-mysql library should be on by default. And probably php-postgres, php-odbc, probably all because they are small in size and offer virtually no performance hit to either server.

Additional info:

This detracts from the "plug and play" nature of Fedora.  Everything generally works great out of the box, its frustrating that creating a generic LAMP server should not work when immediatly when things like SELinux work great with no modifications.
