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 Is the howto out of date or am i just that much of a noobie?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.
