How about mysql client (which will include all the necessary libraries)? having php-mysql install, doesn't mean you will be able to connect if you don't have the libraries.
Since I assume that you are using some form of redhat linux dist, how about the following packages (if I remember them correctly):
1. mysql-4.x
2. mysql-devel
3. mysqlclient

I think the mysql extension was not loaded, that's why you got the
message, and it was not able to recognize the function mysql_connect.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mysql_connect()

how did you install your copy of php? compile it from source?
