    So yeah im a noob but im trying to get better at understanding linux in general so go easy on me.

    In 'installing lamp for newbies' there is a step requiring that i edit the php.ini file. Specifically i am to hunt for ;extension=mysql.so and remove the ';'

    However i cannot find this string in the entire document. Is the howto out of date or am i just that much of a noobie?

    Also i have installed phpmyadmin as per the guide. How do i access it? typing phpmyadmin in the terminal yields nothing.

    Thanks for dealing with a noobie.

    it should be in /etc/php4/apache2/php.ini or /etc/php5... depending on your version, just search for "mysql" you'll find it quite easy, or should do. But you could always just leave the example line commented out and just add
    extension=mysql.so
    to the end of the file. Though if you can't find that comment it could be the wrong file.

    Thanks.
