	Here is what message is posted to the top of
	www.thought.org/blog/ where I cp'd -rp the whole of wordpress

	Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension
	which is required by WordPress.o

	wHen i looked at the directory with firefox3
	file:///usr/local/www/wordpress, there was a similar complain.  
	I did not believe it--because I *do* have mysql installed.  
	Moreover, I set up a "wordpress" database and wordpress_user,
	and all the rest of it.

	So far I am heading into the third day of this: trying to get
	the wordpress port working on my site. (It strikes me   as more
	than a bit ironic that one of the things in the wp description
	is that it looks SO simple.  Not my experience!)

	Question:: which MySQL should I have installed to get the port
	working?  I am been debugging this stuff bit-by-bit.  So far,
	I've upgraded the entire 700 ports since last October.  I have
	kept ``ethic'' to be a server: DNS, mail, and web.  Be great to
	host wordpress working so any help will be v much appreciated!
