Hey all, Its me again.

I am not very goot at sql or php just yet, and i have gained an error from it.
I hope somebody can help

Basically I have narrowed it down to php can not connect to mysql as it is configured with the flag --without mysql

as seen on this php info file

I have tryed to remove sql php and httpd, with yum and install them but nothing changes...
Any help?

I'm definitely not a pro with this stuff, but one thing seems obvious to me. If php was compiled without mysql support which the "--without mysql" implies then you just can't use php with mysql. You have to recompile or install a precompiled binary that has this option enabled. If such binary is not in default FC repos a RPM or alternate repo might be available elsewhere.. I'm not sure. I never used Fedora.

It is rather strange to have php compiled without mysql support considering how common it is to use it with mysql..

I have just got it working, I remembered back.
You need to
yum install php-mysql

Itts stupid and should come with either as a dep but hey, least it works now!

Indeed. I don't see a reason why there must be an sql disabled version of php package. Maybe someone can enlighten me on that.
