[FGS] Problem installing mysql module

I'm afraid I'm still having trouble with this. Yesterday the mysql 
module seemed to install OK, and mysql_connect() etc was recognised. But 
I had a problem with the mysql.sock location. I fixed this in 
php4.ini.template, restarted Apache, but then seemed to lose the mysql 
module - mysql_connect() etc. not recognised, nor does MySQL show up 
with a phpinfo(). The module is still in the pkgs directory.

I tried a fresh install of fgs mapserver, installed the module as before 
and re-started Apache - but this time the module does not seem to be 
working  right from the start (again, it IS in pkgs directory). I'm 
completely baffled. I'd be glad of some more help.

Many thanks
