Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

Hi !

I am having problems getting php(4.0.5) and
mysql(3.23.38) to work on an apache(1.3.9) webserver.
Both php and mysql works fine
separately, but when I try to load mysql in httpd.conf, php complains about some Unresolved symbols, refering to php's mysql functions. Almost as if php didn't recognize
the presence of mysql..(?)

LoadModule mysql_module libexec/libmysqlclient.so

Php is running without complications for
the moment.

Has anybody got this combination up and running ?

Any ideas ?

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

You have to configure php to use mysql.

if you have the php sources installed, first configure with

./configure --with-mysql=/opt/mysql --with-apache=/opt/apache_1.3.19 --with-
config-file-path=/opt/apache/conf

and than create binaries with make and make install

This should work just fine, good luck

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

Thanks for the quick response !

I have configured php with :

./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-apxs --with-config-file-path=/opt/apache_1.3.9/conf/ --enable-track-vars --enable-trans-sid

Still wondering...

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

Hmm..

What are you using
LoadModule mysql_module libexec/libmysqlclient.so
for ????

Compiling mysql support into libphp4.so should be sufficient.
I only use
LoadModule php4_module libexec/libphp4.so
and have no problems
Check if you really compiled mysql support into libphp4.so.
cd libexec
nm libphp4.so | grep mysql
you should get a list of all mysql functions included in your php4 library

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

Hi again !

You are right of course Rainer.
I don't have to use LoadModule mysql_..
if I compile it into php.

I recompiled php with mysql.
In httpd.conf I used LoadModule php4_..

When trying to run a configtest on the
httpd.conf, the following was printed (a small part of it) :

# ./apachectl configtest
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Unresolved symbol: mysql_list_dbs (code) from /opt/apache_1.3.9/libexec/libphp4.so
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Unresolved symbol: mysql_list_fields (code) from /opt/apache_1.3.9/libexec/libphp4.so
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Unresolved symbol: mysql_get_host_info (code) from /opt/apache_1.3.9/libexec/libphp4.so
...

A check with nm libphp4.so | grep mysql
produced this :

mysql_list_dbs | |undef |code |
mysql_list_dbs | 694300|uext |stub |
... and many other functions

Well, what do you think about this mess ?!?

Note: The compilation of php did not produce
a libphp4.so file, it did, however, create a
libphp4.sl file.
I've read somewhere that this file could be
renamed to libphp4.so and used - and so I did.
Hmm..

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

Antti,

really looks like a bit of mess...
what worries me is that your nm output shows i.e
mysql_list_dbs as undef (ined)
so that dld.sl must have problems to load this module

My nm shows:
mysql_list_dbs | 712852|uext |stub |
mysql_list_dbs | 743032|extern|entry |
mysql_list_dbs | 743056|extern|code |$CODE$

so I think that mysql support is not correctly included in your libphp4.so

You should re-make yout php binaries and check why no libphp4.so is created. (make clean ,configure,make,make install)

Alternativly you could download binaries for apache from

http://www.software.hp.com/cgi-bin/swdepot_parser.cgi/cgi/displayProducts.pl?group_name=HP%20Apache-based%20Web%20Server&group_image=cat_featured.gif&group_type=family

this version has PHP and MySql support compiled in and is to be installed with swinstall.

Let me know your successes,
Rainer

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

Alright..
I did what you suggested (make clean, configure, make, make install).

The attachment contains screen dumps of this.
Please check it out.

I am considering resorting to the Apache binary that you pointed out.

Is it possible to use the current configuration with this (i.e httpd.conf) ?

How does it affect the system in general ?

Since this is a server that is hosting other companies domains, I want to be sure of the
consequenses of loading a new binary.

Can I make a "smooth" switch ?

Thanks again for your help !

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

well...., i must confess I dont't really know where to go now
Obviously libs/libphp4.s sn not created as a shared library but should be.

If you decide to install the compiled binaries think that you are installing 1.3.19 whereas you currently have 1.3.9 I think.

hp Apache-based web server for hp-ux 11.0/11i
v.1.3.19.00

I came from something like 1.3.1 to 1.3.19 and as far as I can remember had no problems with httpd.conf.
(but please don't take this as a guarantee)
What I can say is that hp Apache-based web server for hp-ux 11.0/11i has no drawbacks and no further influence on your system.

Good luck

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

Rainer,

I downloaded the binaries for the HP based
Apache server.
While I was browsing the product specification file, I noticed that nothing was said about MySQL though PHP was mentioned.
Did you use this version ?
Are you sure it contains MySQL ?

B9415AA_PA_1.3.19.depot

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

Antti,

yeah,this binary has MySql support compiled into its php4 library.Look at the installed opt/apache/libexec
/libphp4.so with nm and you will see.

I have this apache running on a K360 HP-UX 11.0 with MySql and it works perfect.

Re: Hp-ux 11, php 4 & MySql

OK.

Now I've got it up and running !

I had to install the HP binary with
MySQL and PHP compiled in, then it
started working properly.

I did not have any problems with the
httpd.conf nor any other part of the
system after this.

Thanx, Rainer for all your help !

Hi Antti,

good to hear you got it finally running.
According to my experience you won't have any problems
with this config.
