and when i open it in terminal

i see

; UNIX: "/path1:/path2"
;include_path = ".:/php/includes" << in the article it says uncomment this

which i do but i still get the 'unidentified error'


The "unidentified error" thing would really concern me. I've played with that triplet of apps before and always got helpful error messages like "could not connect to database" , etc. Are errors to the screen turned on in the php.ini? Also, did you comb through all the apache, MySQL and PHP logfiles?

Can you connect directly to the database through a terminal?
Can you run other, unrelated, test php scripts?
If you think it's a path issue in php.ini, did you locate exactly where on the computer the php includes really are and then try that as the include_path?

hth, hopefully someone'll be along who's used that specific bundle of these apps.
