Hi Chris, Hi all,
Thanks for helping me!!
I found one good solution to use the Apache + PHP3 + Mysql into a Debian
Linux... I got the Mysql module for PHP3 available at
The package install the module 'mysql.so', in /usr/lib/apache/1.3
When you are building a PHP3 script and need to call a mysql database,
just add the line dl("mysql.so") and this automatically loads the
module. MySql is now working!!!
I think this tip should be usefull for someone.
