Hello, I hope this is an appropriate post for this newsgroup...

I am using a new installation of Eclipse/PDT on a new Macbook. I have run
into a problem trying to use PDO to create a connection to a mysql
database. The driver isn't installed.

I have read several posts online stating that Apple did not include the
pdo_mysql drivers on their standard implementation of PHP, for some
bizarre reason. But, it appears that the version of PHP5 that comes with
PDT does include pdo_mysql. Is that correct?

So, if that is the case, it seems I have multiple versions of PHP on my
Macbook and, if I simply point to the correct one from Eclipse, I can get
around this issue.

Do my assumptions sound correct?

If they are correct, then how can I accomplish this. (this seems like a
really complicated thing, from what I have been reading in the various

Any advice would really be appreciated.
