phpMyAdmin problem with PHP

P: n/a
Hi

I am very new with Red Hat and am not used to Linux.

PHP seems to be working ok, and i can access mysql databases from the
terminal - But having extracted PhpMyAdmin on to REdHat, phpMyadmin is
showing the following error from the browser

"cannot load MySQL extension,
please check PHP configuration.
DOCUMENTATION (link)"

I have checked the documentation, and it says to install a package called
PHP-MySQL. I have downloaded this and (i think) installed it. But the
error message remains. I am not that great with Linux - so any help you can
provide will be very appreciated.

Thanks

Andy

Before messing with phpMyAdmin, are you able to access (read/write) to a
MySQL table via PHP? My bet is that you did not install PHP with the the
built-in abilty to "talk" to MySQL turned on and you may have to re-install
it. Go to the php.net site and read the install FAQ.
