Binary package “php5-mysql” in ubuntu lucid

MySQL module for php5

 This package provides modules for MySQL database connections directly from
 PHP scripts. It includes the generic "mysql" module which can be used
 to connect to all versions of MySQL, an improved "mysqli" module for
 MySQL version 4.1 or later, and the pdo_mysql module for use with
 the PHP Data Object extension.
 PHP5 is an HTML-embedded scripting language. Much of its syntax is borrowed
 from C, Java and Perl with a couple of unique PHP-specific features thrown
 in. The goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically
 generated pages quickly. This version of PHP5 was built with the Suhosin patch.
