Installing PHP

view full story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello. I'm trying to install PHP 5.2.12 from source with mysql support. The mysql server is running on a different machine, so mysql itself is not installed on the server where I want to install PHP. When running ./configure --with-mysql I get an error message saying that it can't find libmysqlclient. I have tried to find out which package to install, but after installing several packages, still no mysqlclient on this server. My question is: How can I get mysqlclient installed on my server? ---------- Post added at 09:59 AM CST ---------- Previous post was at 09:26 AM CST ---------- Solved. The problem is ld. A symbolic link fixed it: cd /usr/lib64 ln -s mysql/libmysqlclient.so.16.0.0 libmysqlclient.so (HowTos)
