Heres the fix for the error below that I recieved while attempting step 2 of the installation process of FUD

Fatal Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect()

I fixed the error by changing the following link in my php.ini config file for PHP version 4.3.0

DEFAULT
; Default host for mysql_connect() (doesn't apply in safe mode).
mysql.default_host =

CHANGED TO
; Default host for mysql_connect() (doesn't apply in safe mode).
mysql.default_host =localhost

I have no idea why did that fix the problem, the problem you have described (not found function) implies that your PHP does not have MySQL support...

While the Error suggest the absence of mysql support in php the solution provided above is true. I had the same problem, I am using Debian Sarge 3.1. The error made me reinstall the whole OS which was to no avail. apt-get install php4-mysql did not solve the problem as it was already installed but after reading the suggested solution, I am up my feet and running. just append localhost and then restart the webserver

apache2ctl restart

php.ini
-----------
; Default host for mysql_connect() (doesn't apply in safe mode).
mysql.default_host = localhost

Dont ask me why!! It worked for me. Try it.

It worked because you probably have ini settings indicating that mysql connection settings can only be set via INI and not provided directly.
