Like the poor php compiler said, you don't have the php mysql extensions. On redhat, they have the names like php-??. So, the mysql extension package should be php-mysql-??.rpm. Install that, restart apache and test it again. For future reference consider keeping a file called phpinfo.php with the contents

Code: Select all

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

This page will dump out the current configs, and those of all the plugins and extensions of php that are installed.
