Description Florin Andrei 2002-08-20 19:32:39 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020606

Description of problem:
After upgrading to php-4.1.2-7.2.3, my web application stopped working (no MySQL
API in PHP).
The solution was to edit by hand /etc/php.ini and add this line:

extension=mysql.so


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.upgrade to latest php
2.install php-mysql
3.run a web application that uses mysql
	

Actual Results:  there's no mysql support in php

Expected Results:  mysql stuff should work fine

Additional info:

Workaround: edit /etc/php.ini and add:

extension=mysql.so

Instead, the php-mysql package should add itself automatically.

From the spec file.

the section that concerns actions after installing the file (%post) look for the
line ';extension=mysql.so' in the php.ini file
If it finds it, it will remove the ';' The assumption is that
'extension=mysql.so' exists in the php.ini file. If you did not have it present
in your default /etc/php.ini file then no action is taken. This can occur when
upgrading because it is policy to NOT remove or overwrite a configuration file
with a new one, consequently we cannot guarentee what is or is not in the
previous /etc/php.ini file. Note in the errata that we do ask that you carefully
look over your /etc/php.ini file specifically for this reason.
