This is a PHP setup on my ISP, so I don't have root access.

PHP reports configure command as:

'./configure' '--with-apxs=/usr/apache/sbin/apxs' '--enable-versioning' '--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql' '--enable-track-vars' '--enable-safe-mode' '--with-exec-dir=/big/dom/PHP_bin' '--enable-magic-quotes' '--enable-memory-limit' '--enable-sysvsem' '--enable-sysvshm' '--with-gd=/usr/gd-with_gif' '--with-zlib=/usr/lib' '--enable-bcmath' '--enable-inline-optimizations' '--with-ttf' '--with-xml' '--with-db2'

dba is shown as: "V1 ($Id: dba.c,v 1.21 2000/07/13 18:44:57 eschmid Exp $) db2"

dba_open("testdb", "n", "db2") with any option for opening the db gets a Warning: driver initialization failed in [test/index.php] on line 30, dba_open failed error.

This is no bug in PHP.  The user id which Apache is run with doesn't
have write access to the current directory. Try using some path
you know it does have write access to. Contact your ISP for more info.
