    "Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress."

    I have a slackware 10.2 box with:
    Apache/2.2.0 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.0 OpenSSL/0.9.7g DAV/2 PHP/5.0.4, mysql-4.1.15

    I have created database wordpress and user wordpress with all privileges on this database.
    I have configured wp-config.php

    All files is with default rights and chown -R to my apache user.

    What is the problem ?

    MySql database is working and tested with
    phpMyAdmin 2.6.4-pl1

    Create a file somewhere on your site with a .php extension; put this in it and post a link to it.

    <?php phpinfo(); ?>

    Seems like you don't have MySQL installed (or installed correctly).

    [edit] maybe this:

    Explanation (in lay terms): MySQL and PHP act like two independent "things" running in parallel - but they do not "talk" to each other ;)
