Hi everyone.

I'm looking at upgrading my current perl based shopping cart that uses
a flat text database with a PHP MySQL driven database.

I've installed and configured PHP successfully. I habve no experience
with MySQL, I went to install MySQl (I'm running 5.4-RELEASE FreeBSD
5.4-RELEASE) I went into ports and see

mysql++/              mysql-navigator/      mysql40-client/
mysql50-client/       mysqlman/
mysql++1/             mysql2odbc/           mysql40-scripts/
mysql50-scripts/      mysqltcl/
mysql-administrator/  mysql2pgsql/          mysql40-server/
mysql50-server/       mytop/
mysql-connector-java/ mysql323-client/      mysql41-client/
mysql-connector-odbc/ mysql323-scripts/     mysql41-scripts/
mysql-editor/         mysql323-server/      mysql41-server/

Does anyone know what is required?

Do I need server? Cleint? Both? Scripts?  What is the typical
installation for MySQL?

Thank, I really appreciated it.
