I have a set of servers and programs I am responsible for working with. One of the
programs running on the servers is a quick report-generating program, written in PHP,
that is supposed to draw information from a pair of databases, one of which is a MySQL
Earlier today, I was informed that the group working with one of the servers were having
trouble displaying some of their reports. A quick check revealed that the program was
unable to get past the mysql_connect() statement in the program. When error suppression
was turned off, I was given the following error message:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_real_connect() in
/srv/www/htdocs/tech_site_lst.php on line 123
Another system was also tested, running side-by-side with the damaged one, and managed
to produce the expected results. The pertinent information for the two systems is as
follows; problem system is 1, control is 2:
1. OS- SuSE 9.2 Linux.
2. OS- SuSE 9.2 Linux.
1. PHP- Version 5.2.0
2. PHP- Version 4.3.10
1. MySQL- Version 4.1.10a
2. MySQL- Version 4.1.10a
I recognize that this may be a problem with PHP, since that is the difference between
the two setups, but as the error was for mysql_connect(), I felt it would be appropriate
to check here first. If I am wrong in this, I apologize.
Does anyone know of anything which I may do to correct this problem, or of anywhere that
I might be able to seek out more information on it?
Thank you for your consideration.
