Configuration: Installing MySql


I have installed PHP 5 and running it.

Now, I want to install MySql. Is there conflict that I installed PHP prior to install MqSql.

If so, how can I solve and manage the problem!!! Do I need to uninstall PHP and install MySql and then PHP.

Look forward your advice!!! Many thanks!



PHP and MySQL can be installed independently, so don’t worry about issues between installations themselves. What MySQL does is allow PHP a point of access when in use, and PHP can, but does not have to, use this point (the most common point of access is the mysql_connect() function). If PHP doesn’t connect to the MySQL, these two are fully independent applications.
