install php-mysql

what is your distribution?

on most mysql support in php is a seperate package, so you must install the php-mysql package (or some similar name)

in Mandrake you'd do

you might have to restart apache after installing the php-mysql package to make sure it loaded

might be slightly different depending on your distribution.
