Description Bishop Clark 2002-11-18 14:00:23 UTC
Description of Problem:
Although PHP on RHL 7.3 includes libraries for accessing pgsql servers, mysql
seems to not be supported.

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

How Reproducible:
Oh, pretty much all the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put this on a php page:
2. <? $link = mysql_connect ("localhost", "root", ""); ?>
3. viewing the page will give the following error:

Actual Results:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mysql_connect() in
/home/bishop/public_html/work.php on line 

Expected Results:
Another error, possibly related to authentication on the local mysql db.

Additional Information:
I may be wrong on this.  I hope I am, because it means I don't have to reroll
the RPM for myself.  It's Muy Annoying to try and keep pace with the updates -
I'm working 36 hour shifts as it is!

Comment 1 Bishop Clark 2002-11-18 14:09:20 UTC
Yep, I'm a ninny.  It's so late/early I'm not reading the specfile correctly and
seeing the %package mysql.  Must sleeeep... must slee-ooh, caffeine!

Sorry folks.
