Very pleased (at first) I found a step by step installation description, I started installing MySQL and PHP.
The 'tar xfv' worked fine on MySQL, but already on the second command (% ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql) something probably went wrong.
" After sitting through the screens and screens of configuration tests, (..)"
Well, didn't see that many screens...
The .err file says:
mysqld started on Tue Sep 26 15:31:59 CEST 2000
/root/mysql-3.22.32-pc-linux-gnu-i686/bin/mysqld: ready for connections
" you'll eventually get back to a command prompt. You're ready to compile MySQL: % make "
Got back to the command prompt (without seeing all those configuration screens), typed in 'make', but the result was:
'make: *** No targets. Stop.'
I'm using RedHat Linux 6, and downloaded the most recent stable versions of MySQL and PHP.
Hope someone can help...
Well, not too many people here in this forum that reply to problems, right!?
Mysql also comes prebuild for RedHat. Try that. If configuring and making doesn't work after the 3rd time it's mostly hard to get it running.
