I'm currently using a configuration like this:
Apache 2.0.53, PHP 5.0.3, MySQL 4.1.10, WordPress 1.5
Don't know if this post should be here on in some other category, but I'll try here first.
On to the actual question/problem;
I can't make the installation work..
Since I've got mysql 4.1.10 that doesn't want anything to do with the old mysql_select etc. statement, I tried to exchange them for the newer mysqli ones instead. Mucked about a little with the code, and I got the installation scripts to show up.
I actually seem to get through the entire install.php sequence, without any errors, but nothing is actually written to the database. no tables are created at all. Tried to run the thing through a debugger, but that one crashes when trying to use the mysqli functions.. I'm no expert at PHP whatsoever, and I can't find where the possible error might be.
Is there anyone else out there who has tried to make wordpress work with php5 and the newer versions of mysql? Someone who actually made it work? Or is there anyone who knows when wordpress will support the newer mysql interface?
