Integrating a PHP project with MySQL

I've had a lot of trouble integrating Mambo and MySQL. Can you offer some pointers?
Here are some things I would look at when generally integrating a PHP project with MySQL:
  1. Do you have recent versions of PHP and MySQL installed? MySQL 4.1 is recommended at the moment, along with PHP 5 if you can get it.
  2. Are you having a password hashing issue? I have written about diagnosing and resolving this at my FAQ.
  3. Do you have a proper user and database created with appropriate permissions for the user?
  4. Have you checked the MySQL error log?
There are a lot of unknowns when advising on installing something like Mambo. Hopefully, these considerations will get you started.
