If you are planning to place a database online via a hosting company, it seems most of them are still stuck on a 4.x release. The 5.x release has some nice new features but if you are new to coding databases then that may not be important right now.

If both of you search this site you can find a recommendation for an install tool that takes care of both MySQL and PHP. Using PHP through Apache is a matter of uncommenting a couple of lines in its config file. I don't remember having to install a special version of PHP when I played with it a while ago.

Download and install 'Mamp' it will configure PHP, Apache and MySQL for you!

Hi people,

I downloaded mysql 5.0 but theres no pkg file for me to open and install the thing, what have I done wrong?!

To xstep: should I download 4.x instead of 5.x? what do the current social-networking sites run off? My idea is essentially a social-networking site but not a general one like myspace or facebook, Im aiming for a much smaller audience, but nontheless, they are an inspiration.

To Del: I successfully uncommented the lines needed to get php working on my Tiger. There was a little bug where "?" was put in 2 places that stopped my apache from working but a friend and I found it and sorted it. I did download and install MAMP but I got rid of it in the end because its not the same as enabling whats already on my Tiger and installing the other necessary bits. But thanks any way.

Hope to hear from people soon!!

I said why I thought 4.x might be better to use. You can find hosting companies that have 5.x installed, sometimes you have to state that is what you want. So if you know your hosting company can supply 5.x, then go with that because it gives you more abilities. And it sounds like you want to code from scratch, so those abilities may come in handy.

I can't help the the pkg question as that is not in my head currently.
