Hi I am having issues w/ the following config:
I have Apache, mysql, PHP and perl (activestate) installed in my XP (NOT
through cygwin but installed individually). I can use dos prompt and
connect to mysql DB (e.g mysql -U???? -P?????), I can also use Mysql-Front /
SQLyog to connect to mysql (localhost of course). But if I open an xterm
through cygwin, I cannot connect to mysql (e.g mysql -U???? -P?????). Also
the activestate perl (has DBD DBI mysql module installed) can access mysql
db (through dos calling a pl script / using cgi through apache). But I
cannot use perl through cygwin to connect to mysql. WHen I tried to do a
'mysql -U???? -P????' through the xterm in cygwin, it'll just 'hang' and
keep me waiting and waiting w/out errors..so I had to do a hard excape.
also when I tried to execute the same perl script (the same script I used
through dos prompt) through the xterm in cygwin, i cannot connect to mysql.
Not sure if it's the same issue (mysql and perl), but how should I tackle
them? I know that the perl and mysql package is different b/w the one
installed in windows and the one installed through cygwin. anyways I can
have cygwin use the perl and mysql installed in windows? when I do a 'which
perl' it tells me it's using /usr/bin/perl while the perl (activestate)
under windows is installed in another dir so it's definitely using a
different perl package. I tried installed DBI:mysql bundle into the perl
pkg in cygwin but it failed becoz it cannot find the mysql_config. so I
cannot installed that. ANyhelp will be appreciated. thx
