I have been trying to compile and install php with the MySQLi extensions. My Linux Dist. is FC4. So far I have not had any luck.
I have MySQL 5.0.22 installed on the same box (this is a development box). Does anyone have a step by step set of instructions that
states what I need and what commands to issue? I've been bouncing back and forth between the MySQL and PHP help documents, and
find they it's hard to get a clear cut answer on just what I'm really supposed to do.
So far I have downloaded php-5.1.4.tar.gz, unpackaged it and tried to do ./configure --with mysqli=/usr/bin. It keeps telling me that I have the wrong MySQL client, but I have the 5.0.22 client installed also.
Thanks for any help.
