Perl can't find DBD::mysql module

I recently installed Redhat 7.  I want to turn this into a web server.  

I have installed Apache2, and Perl 5.6 was already installed on the system.  I need Perl to be able to access mysql, since I plan on using MovableType.

I downloaded the newest versions of DBD, mysql, and showtable.  I built all 3 modules successfully.  Yet if I try to use the modules inside a perl script, it doesnt find them.

Anybody know what i did wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Download perl-DBD-MySQL, libdbi-dbd-mysql and lastly, perl-DBI-.... from your distribution's website or from MySQL website.
You can search for it in google and download also.

Did you install the perl modules? The normal steps to install a Perl module is to first create the Makefile:

perl Makefile.pl

Then you do a make, followed by a make install:

make
make install

What is the exact error message you get?

I dont get an error message.  Perl just does not find the modules.

When you say you installed DBD, are you sure you installed DBD-mysql? There are a number of DBD modules, every one for a different database.

I fixed my problem by installing RedHat 9.

Since I must give the points to someone, I'll award them to gtkfreak, since his/her answer was the only answer not in the form of a question.

Actually, you don't have to give the points to somebody: If you solved the problem yourself, and post the solution (which you did), you can request a refund of your points by posting a request in the Community Support area (see the link at the top of the page).
