Yellow Dog Linux Day 2

I’m finally getting the hang of YDL.  I had to recompile PHP to get it work with MySQL.  I had to find out how to do that first.  I ended up doing the following:

  1. Downloaded the latest 4.x version of PHP
  2. Inside my new PHP directory I executed the following command: ./configure –with-mysql
  3. Executed make
  4. Executed make install

Once that was done I could get phpmyadmin working to create a database for the phpBBS I wanted to install in the first place!

Linux is such fun. 😦
