I have a mac with a custom PHP 5 install that built from about a year ago. I remember it took all Sunday and I had to compile about 20 times to get it right. The MySQL I have is from entropy and was precompiled.
Now I need to get PDO with the MySQL driver working and the driver is not installed. I tried the "pecl install pdo_mysql" and it dies at a point where it can't find some mysql files. Any ideas how I can fix this quickly?
checking for mysql_config... not found
configure: error: Cannot find MySQL header files under
ERROR: `/private/tmp/pear/temp/PDO_MYSQL/configure' failed
I'll post whatever paths or messages you need to help me troubleshoot this. Will I have to compile PHP all over again, or can I just compile the pdo_mysql extension?
I hope I don't seem lazy, I just have a lot of code to write and not a lot of time to fight with my PHP configuration.
