Here is an exerpt from my install doc, it's for FreeBSD but I used it on RH8
and it worked...

You may only need to do the last line, but PTH may also be needed...the
./configure lines may be your best clue to what's missing

Install in this order.....  --prefix just installs in custom directories
A) Mysql
# cd /home/software/mysql-3.23.49
# ./configure --prefix=/home/mysql
# make
# make install
- add a mysql group # pw groupadd mysql
- add a mysql user #adduser -g mysql mysql
- create the main system tables
# /home/mysql/mysql_install_db
- from # /home/mysql/share/mysql select the template that suits your
needs best (my- medium.cnf etc) and copy it as my.cnf under the /etc
# cp /home/mysql/share/mysql/my- medium.cnf /etc/my.cnf
-Change the owners of the mysql directories
# chown -R root /home/mysql
# chown -R mysql /home/mysql/data
# chgrp -R mysql /home/mysql
-Start the mysql server
# /home/mysql/bin/safe_mysqld --user=mysql &
- set the password for root in mysql (this can be done later using

# cd /home/software/pth-1.4.1
# ./configure
# make
# make install

C) Install Apache
# cd /home/software/apache-2.0.39
# ./configure --prefix=/home/www --enable-module=so
# make
# make install

D) Install PHP
# cd /home/software/php-4.2.1
# ./configure --with- mysql --with-tsrm-pth --withapxs2=/
# make
# make install
# copy the php.ini-dist file to /usr/local/bin/php.ini
cp php.ini-dist /usr/local/bin/php.ini
- edit the php.ini file and rem out error reporting
- edit the httpd.conf file and add
-AddType application/x- httpd-php .php

Subject: [Snort-users] Acid and PHP Redhat 8.0

I am getting this info after connecting to my apache server using acid:
PHP ERROR: PHP build incomplete: the prerequisite MySQL support required to
read the alert database was not built into PHP. Please recompile PHP with
the necessary library (--with-mysql)
I have recompiled with the --with-mysql and get the same results.

Anyone have a solution?
