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