Where could I find a old RPM of MySQL client utilities. I am not sure which one, all I know is that Apache fails to load PHP with this message:

httpd: Syntax error on line 3 of /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/local/apache2/modules/libphp5.so into server: libmysqlclient.so.14: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

what version of redhat are you running ? you can find the rpms on ftp.redhat.com

The mysql package that comes with EL4 contains libmysqlclient.so.14. If you've installed a newer version from another source then you'll need to rebuild PHP for it.

Some Googling got me to here


which led me to the RPM here


This worked for me since I needed it as soon as possible, but I wouldn't call this route best practice. It did get my site back up though.
