    I can run Mysql from a shell. Normal installation of php works to. But when i configure php for mysql it doesn't go very well.

    ./configure --with-apache=/usr/apache --with-mysql=/var/mysql

    the message appears. Can't find libmysqlclient.a or libmysqlclient.so. But these files aren't on my linux system. But i have installed mysql server and client. So what can i do about this. Please help me it's for an intranet at a hospital.

    Try this..
    ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-mysql

    You should first find out where apxs is. You may also leave out the search path of mysql unless you see something not found, then you should specify the path more like /usr/local/mysql
    /var/mysql is likely not the correct path.
    If things still don't go well, you might need to install mysql-devel-3.20.32a-3.i386.rpm (for redhat) as well. I don't run redhat, so I don't know the answer.
