Installing the php4-mysql module is the correct first step. The
question is why that new module isn't being loaded as part of
mod_php4? Eliminating the obvious: did you kill and restart apache
/after/ installing php4-mysql?
If that doesn't work, then what is the value of the 'extension_dir'
property in /usr/local/etc/php.ini ? By default it should be commented
; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
; extension_dir = "./"
