Yesterday, I was enjoying just messing around with the website code, since I've not touched the actual settings of PHP and Apache since yesterday... (I must say I had the module php_mysql enabled) I made a MySQL connector yesterday and worked perfectly! This morning, I start up the computer and when I try to run Apache, it gives me 'The requested operation has failed'. I look in the apache log and I see this.
[Fri Feb 22 08:07:39 2013] [warn] pid file C:/dev/progs/Apache/Apache2/logs/httpd.pid overwritten -- Unclean shutdown of previous Apache run?
I looked around the internet and found I must delete that file. I tried deleting then restarting but that didn't work.
Then I found that disabling all PHP modules will work. So I went ahead and disabled the php_mysql module (that is the only one enabled).
Then it starts up again! Except I want it to start with MySQL. Then I try to run the connector on my php page. I get this.
[22-Feb-2013 07:59:54] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\dev\www\test\index.php on line 48
So I really want mysql to run on PHP, but I don't want mysql to stop me running Apache...
