When doing an easy apache rebuild based on a previously saved build that has Mysql.....if I also select to add PDO and PDO_MYSQL for the new build, could that create any problems with existing sites that are running on the existing build with mysql.

Will Mysql, PDO and PDO_MYQSL all run smoothly alongside each other?

(I want to install magento to test it out and so require the PDOs for this, but dont want to break what I already have working nicely for oscommerce)

Hello :)

You should not experience any issues when enabling PDO and PDO_MySQL through EasyApache. It should build successfully.

Thank you.

Could any issues with websites on the server arise, because of installing these 2 extra extensions. Or as long as I also select mysql in the config as well, should they all continue to operate as before?

MySQL is installed and updated separately from EasyApache. Adding additional PHP extensions should not result in any problems with websites that do not use them.

Thank you.

Each of MySQL, MySQLi, and PDO_MySQL are separate ways of talking to the MySQL database service with PHP applications. You can also think of these things as drivers. An application will only use the driver the application was written to use. If you add a new driver, it will not effect existing applications. If you remove an existing driver it will effect applications that use the driver.
