    Help, setting up PHP

    Im reading the "build your own database driven website" book by kevin. Im installing PHP on Mac OS X 10.6(Jaguar). I needed to download the libphp4.so.tar.gz. I downloaded it from where he says to But mine is a dmg file with a pkg installation file. Then in the book i have to go into terminal and move the file i extracted on to the desktop into the apache configuration directory. But i have no libphp4.so to move into that directory.

    Will that pkkg installation do it for me???? im lost.

    it should do it for you. altho my os x machine is stock out of the box and all i had to do is edit the httpd.conf file to allow for php to be started with apache and then it worked fine. you might want to check that out first. If i remember right the httpd.conf file is located in the /etc/httpd/conf dir or some place around there..

    ok, i got that part figured out. I THINK. my next problem is setting a root password for mysql

    he says: type the following command line in the bin directory of your mysql installation

    mysql -u root mysql

    once again im stuck.
