I run Bugzilla's (migrating an older version), and it always returns:

Reading ./localconfig. 
Checking for           DBD-mysql (v4.00)   Ok: found v4.005

There was an error connecting to MySQL:

    Undefined subroutine &DBD::mysql::db::_login called at /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/DBD/ line 142, <DATA> line 225.

MySQL Version:

[root@bugzilla-core TMP]# mysql --version
Mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.60sp1, for redhat-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.1

And mysql_config:

[root@bugzilla-core TMP]# mysql_config
Usage: /data01/mysql-5.0.60/bin/mysql_config [OPTIONS]
        --cflags         [-I/data01/mysql-5.0.60/include  -g]
        --include        [-I/data01/mysql-5.0.60/include]
        --libs           [-rdynamic -L/data01/mysql-5.0.60/lib -lmysqlclient -lz -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lmygcc]
        --libs_r         [-rdynamic -L/data01/mysql-5.0.60/lib -lmysqlclient_r -lz -lpthread -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lpthread -lmygcc]
        --socket         [/tmp/mysql.sock]
        --port           [0]
        --version        [5.0.60sp1]
        --libmysqld-libs [-rdynamic -L/data01/mysql-5.0.60/lib -lmysqld -lz -lpthread -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lpthread -lrt -lmygcc]

Now, I've tried the latest version of DBD-mysql (4.0.14). I'm completely lost and stumped. I'm not sure where to go from here. Scouring the 'webs haven't returned anything fruitful.

Any ideas?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

there is a possibly related topic over at ServerFault. That said, this strikes me as possibly being a 32bit/64bit mix match problem - maybe a wrong RPM installed or something like that. Maybe try building dbd-mysql from source?

You must always build DBD::mysql against the version of MySQL you are using, on the platform you are on.
