I have just down graded my PHP-installation from 5.3.9 to 5.3.3. This in order to be able to use yum/EPEL instead of compiling everything myself.

Appearently, mysqlnd-support isn't available in 5.3.3 and since I don't want to compile the source myself anymore, I cannot just add it during that phase.

I would like to use yum/EPEL, but there seems to be no package for mysqlnd available yet.

Any suggestions for how to do this (other than re-programming the application)?

The mysqlnd driver is built in to 5.3 as standard? – Ben Lessani - Sonassi Mar 23 '12 at 1:42
Nope (at least not for me...), but you have the links where you can get it from here: (this works with 5.3.3). @cjc has some suggestions as well, the answer is updated after I solved my problem so I haven't tried that actual solution. Please note that if you use my link that repository is not searched by default when you do some yum-activity, don't remember how to include it but it's on their page somewhere. – Nicsoft Mar 24 '12 at 14:17

The module is in Atomicorp's RPM repostiroy:

You will probably need to do a package upgrade to 5.3.9 using their reposistory. Take a look at for the shell script that will install and activate that repository.

Thanks again cjc, this was some related problem to the change to EPEL that you helped out with. It worked fine using the repo and yum. – Nicsoft Mar 13 '12 at 17:21
