A .tar of what? The sources? Better put them into /usr/ports/distfiles. > It seems strange to have to install it again especially when I installed > php5-extensions with mysql and mysqli extensions. Hmmm... Well that should have installed the php5-mysql port for you, certainly. > When I tried to make, it tries to fetches MySQL 4.1 whereas I have 5.0 > installed. How can I update the version?

As a basic rule you should never have to directly edit any file within the port directory. To make mysql-5.0.x the default version on your system, edit /etc/make.conf and add: WITH_MYSQL_VER= 50 Then do a 'make clean' in the php-mysql port and try again.
