php5 has a new set of functions for mysql, these are all named mysqli_*
instead of mysql_* - this has to do with the problems surrounding mysql licensing (the work around was, I believe, to write a new set of functions which were not tied to the mysql lic.)
anyway mysql_connect() won't work in php5 - although I do believe it's possible to compile in the 'old' mysql lib yourself.
check the docs or google it for more info (there is plenty of commentary on this subject).

i have installed php5 and mysql on 9.1 and when i use php to connect to mysql i get the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect()
Why is this happening and how do i fix it?
My php script is correct i double checked.
