PHP modules don't talk to MySQL

MySQL connectivity for exisitng scripts known to work do not work. I used
a copy of apache and PHP3 that I compiled that work fine on this
Do the database work if you log in manually as the nobody user and execute the
And could you elaborate on the "do not work" part?
Oh - and how you tried the components in Rawhide?
OK, I fixed this one. Since I was converting a server over from a RH 6.2
installation I failed to make an "apache" user. I have I configured the Listen
Directive to listen on port 8000 and tried to start it via
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start and it wouldn't. When i started it by
/usr/sbin/httpd -D HAVE_PHP4 it gave me the eeror about the apache user. That
is a change from 6.2 since in 6.2 it ran as nobody. Though I did create a
"webserver" user to run it under in 6.2. The PHP module is working OK and is
connecting. humblest apologies.
Looks like I should be closing this one out, then.
yep, go for it....though that machine has stopped responding. I'll check it
this morning, there may be a new bug report to come. It had been under attack
from hackers who got into RH6.2 via rpc.statd and then installed the rootkit.
It required a format and re-install. I decided to try pinstripe. If the
hackers are back, they may have crashed it. It might be time to put up a
"honeypot" RH6.1 machine. but I digress
