I am trying to access a mysql database server from a php 5.2 server that doesn't have mysql installed on it. I don't have access or the ability to reinstall php on this server. Is it possible to install mysql after php is installed and up and running?
If it is not possible, what would be the best solution to accessing the database? The best solution I could think of would be to require a php file that is running on a server that I have control of and that has mysql installed and using that file to call the database to get the information I need. Thanks for any help. Patrick
