Support » Installing WordPress » Install Step2 -> white Page; mail() issue? mySQL Issue?

  • I encountered a strange behavior, while installing WP on Apache/2.2.4 (FreeBSD)
    PHP 5.2.2
    mySQL 5.0.41

    What I’ve done so far:
    reloading install.php?step=2 reveals

    > ERROR: please type your e-mail address

    I get the same result with a hardcoded admin e-mail in ~/wp-admin/install.php line 69

    Then i patched wp_check_mysql_version() in upgrade-functions.php which reveals
    > ERROR: WordPress 2.2 requires MySQL 4.0.0 or higher
    though “echo mysql_get_server_info();” says 5.0.41

    This behavior can be reproduced with WP Versions 2.2, 2.1.3 and 2.0.10

    WP is working fine in another virtual domain on the same server.

    Is there any PHP/mySQL-crack out there to point me to the right direction?

    Here are some server details from phpinfo():
