We are running our Intranet server internally without no access to the outside world. This web site is for internal employees only who are on the network. I started the process to install
WordPress so the marketing department can use it to update our Intranet Web Site.
Since we are using the RHEL 4 OS on our server, I updated both MySQL and PHP in order to meet the minimum requirements for WordPress. I am not sure if I updated the components properly but I have provided a screenshot to show what was installed in regards to MySQL and PHP.
I am a notice Linux user and I am very frustrated with the entire process. I have started the WordPress installation steps as outlined from WordPress. I get to step 5 to run the install script and I receive the following error message:
'Your PHP Installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress'
I have googled the error message and found different responses but nothing has helped. I am not sure where to look or what to correct in order to fix this error. I know MySQL and PHP are running.
Please help because I am ready to swear off Linux forever. If this was a windows environment, this would be not a problem but since I am a novice at Linux, my frustration lever is high.
Please give me step by step procedures. Does anyone think I should uninstall WordPress, MySQL and PHP and then re-install them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I am in desparate need of help!!!!
