Install pdo_mysql module with php on 64 bit linux machine


The PHP Data Objects (PDO) extension defines a lightweight, consistent interface for accessing databases in PHP. Each database driver that implements the PDO interface can expose database-specific features as regular extension functions. Note that you cannot perform any database functions using the PDO extension by itself; you must use a database-specific PDO driver to access a database server. 

PDO_MYSQL is a driver that implements the PHP Data Objects (PDO) interface to enable access from PHP to MySQL 3.x and 4.x databases. 

I referred the followings steps :

1) Download the PDO package to server :


2) Manually build and install the PDO extension:

# tar xzf PDO-0.2.tgz
# cd PDO-0.2
# phpize
# ./configure
# make
# make install
# echo >> /usr/local/lib/php.ini

3) rebuild PHP along with the drivers for PDO_mysql.

4) check php module using php -m command
