Can't install Perl Module DBD::mysql

Postby Nick Taylor » 04. February 2004 18:26

I'm afraid I need a tip again.
I am using webmin to control the backups for MySQL (backup the various databases), but the scheduled backup option doesn't want to be enabled. I can select scheduled backups (hourly, to make sure it works) but it doesn't work, and when I go back to the options, the scheduled backup shows as not activated...
I have also noticed that when i go to the MySQL Database Server part in the LAMPP part of Webmin, it says:
Warning: The Perl module DBD::mysql is not installed on your system, so Webmin will not be able to reliably access your MySQL database. Click here to install it now.
Now when I click to install the module, it says it cannot install because it's looking for a file (mysql.h) and it cannot find it...
Installation of Msql::Mysql::modules failed. Check the output above and try installing manually.
Where is your MySQL installed? Please tell me the directory that
contains the subdir 'include'. [/usr/local] /usr/local
Cannot find one of include/mysql/mysql.h, include/mysql.h in /usr/local at lib/DBD/mysql/Install.pm
line 165.

Any ideas, anyone?

Oh, and i've tried to download the module manually, but can't figure out how to install it manually.... :oops: Sorry

Right, had to learn German for this one, with the help of someone else at work, but I've found the solution in the German section of the forum.
So, for anyone who can't read German, here's the solution (dead easy, thanks to Kai!):

Download the following file: http://www.apachefriends.org/lampp-dbdm ... .9a.tar.gz
Then simply go to a Konsole prompt and type tar xvfz lampp-dbdmysql-0.9.9a.tar.gz -C /opt and that is it!

Enjoy!
