I'm a newbie to this, but I am determined. I wanted to test perl-based functionality on my PC (XPpro) "server." I have installed apache, php, mysql, cgi. All components and connections work except perl to mysql.
It is amazing after reading hundreds of posts on many sites, that apparently DBD::mysql does not run on my platform, in fact cannot not even be installed, and any other suggested replacements really get confusing. People have been troubled and writing about this since 2000, and no one has solved the issue!
Would someone please tell me that I am missing something?
Thanks a lot.
