Add MySQLi to PHP on RHEL4

Ahhh

I know this should be easy to fix but I am still a little new to Linux.

I have Mysql installed and I have php installed - and I have apahce installed

All are working - but I don't have the MySQLi module loaded in PHP

I have version 4.3.9 of PHP and 5.0.18standard of MySQL


I didn't know where to ask this since it involves programming (PHP) and database (MySQL)

That worked great

What exactly did it do? I am familar with the purpose of up2date but I don't exactly understand how it fixed this problem.

did it modify my php.ini file?

thanks
