1. I have installed Mysql 5 and media wiki 1.7 in FreeBSD 6.0 version. but
forgot to install PHP before media wiki installation.
but while installing mediawiki (through ports collection) some PHp
packages its installed automatically.
2 . after the mediawiki installation I used ports collection
(/usr/ports/lang/php5) to install php5 but I haven't selected any options
from the menu .
after installation of php and modifications in httpd.conf , I pointed my
browser to my media wiki installation
, I got the mediawiki setup link , but when I clicked the link its showing
the error message as follows
* PHP 5.2.0 installed
Could not find a suitable database driver!
o For MySQL, compile PHP using --with-mysql, or install the
o For PostgreSQL, compile PHP using --with-pgsql, or install the
3 .So I returned to /usr/ports/lang/PHP5 and tried make reinstall but its
showing an error already Php5.2.0 installed so I can't move further.
4 . the I tried /usr/ports/lang/php5-extensions (make install clean) and
selected from the menu Mysql support & zlib support and continued its
completed .. then tried the mediawiki setup link but got another error
php-xml support was not ther , so returned to
/usr/ports/lang/php5 / php5-extensions
but when i have given the make reinstall again both ports not showing the
menu frame to select any of the mysql driver or xml support
If any body ther who familiar with these , I will be
very thankfull to you , as this is an urgent requirement for me
Thanks in Advance
