Apache hates me

Hi as you can tell from the number under my name im pretty new here, but i do have a question. This apache server is agrivating me. First off i am running SuSe 8 upgraded from 7.3 and I downloaded installed apache 2.0.43, PHP 4.2.3 and MySQL 3.23.53a-1.i386 installed it all. I did make sure to change the ServerName to its proper designation. Now when i try to run apachectl start i get the following message;

Syntax error on line 9 of /etc/httpd/suse_loadmodule.conf: Cannot load /usr/lib/apache/libphp4.so into server: libsnmp- cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory /usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

I checked out suse_loadmodule.conf to see if i infact infact it was trying to load somthing that i did not have. Everything was fine everything trying to be loaded was not only present but pointed in the right direction. I did how ever not find libsnmp- it turns out the version i have is libsnmp- So i assume that is where my problem is. Now my question is a semi two parter. How do i make the apache loader look for libsnmp- instead of libsnmp- so that i can get the ball rolling here, if i am wrong and that is not the issue what is and how can i go about fixing it? All the instructions i have read only suggest perfect conditions and offer no trouble shooting advice.

That is all i wanted to know, i hope its as small of a problem as i think but if not oh well thats the price of doing business some days.

I not trying to make just a band-aid fix, but sometimes, it will have to do until you find a real fix (the first thing I would do it is uninstall all version of PHP, then reinstall the current version, but I digress).

You could try making a soft link from the current version to the version it's looking for...

I hope someone has a better answer...

As I recall the following PHP book has a chapter on setting up both Apache and MySQL:


Or it might have been this MySQL book:


I have both, BTW.

I am also using SuSE 7.3 and when I installed the MySQL rpm it didn't work too -- the owner and group of some files were not correct out of the box so mysqld didn't load. I got the solution from alt.os.linux.suse last year searching the newsgroup, hopefully it's not yet deleted.

To save me from further trouble (even though I have applied the fix) I removed the rpm and replaced it with a binary tarball distribution from MySQL. It works great, even with a 4.0.3 beta release.
