Thread: php-mysql, but no mysql and postgresql and no php-postgresql :-)

    php-mysql, but no mysql and postgresql and no php-postgresql :-)


    Does anyone know where to find a mysql ipk package for the WL500g ?

    It seems like "someone" has it, since I get this while trying to install the mysql package for php :

    Installing php-mysql (5.0.3-7) to root...
    ERROR: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for php-mysql:
    ...and since postgresql actuately DOES exist as a package, is there any chance that "someone" (maby the one who made the php package) will also make the postgresql extention for php :-)

    Hi Macsat!

    Have you been able to use the postgresql package found?

    I have installed it but it seems its corrupted as when I try to run

    initdb or postmaster with the -D switch its telling me always:

    Installation corrupted or file " " doesn't not exist? I have specified everything I think?!

    Its a pitty that neither mysql package or postgresql extension for php is available as they seem to be available for nslu2 for quite some time now.....

    Unfortunately I cannot do the conversion to the wl500g myself as I am not such a techie :-(

    I have the same fault as Rainer on my WL-HDD.

    I ipkg'd adduser and zlib and, of course, postgresql. The installation of the postgresql-package creates a new user "postgres".

    ipkg install postgresql
    Installing postgresql (8.0.3-1) to root...
    Configuring postgresql
    No postgres group found, creating postgres group ... cp: unable to open `/share/hdd/conf/': No such file or directory
    No postgres user found, creating postgres user ... cp: unable to open `/share/hdd/conf/': No such file or directory
    The /opt/var/pgsql/data directory already exists
    Starting PostgreSQL: ok
    Successfully terminated.

    [admin@(none) init.d]$ su -l postgres -c 'initdb -D /opt/var/pgsql/data'
    initdb: file "" does not exist
    This means you have a corrupted installation or identified
    the wrong directory with the invocation option -L.

    What can I do to get it running?

    I posted this question at Macsat's forum some weeks ago, but yet no answer :-(
