You don't have to reinstall the entire OS, that's a very Windows
approach to the problem. I played around a bit last night with urpmi and
you should be able to just list the packages you need with urpmq --fuzzy
package_name, and then install the ones listed you think you need. I did
notice that urpmi doesn't install the DB when you install the Apache mod
for that DB, so you might need to install that separately, but other
than that, you should be good to go if you install the Apache php mod.
