thanks Jim, 

this command was very useful. I'll have to remember it. :-)

Found the problem - When MySQL went from 4.0.x to 4.1.x the php mysql
connection commands changed.

I had to recompile php with the --with-mysqli option and then it showed
up in phpinfo and with a simple change to my website, it all works. :-)

it's a very simple change:

instaid of 'mysql_connect' it's now 'mysqli_connect'
