I have some developed this habit of putting an * at the end. I think this might installed all the necessary packages will run smoothly forever, not knowing the possible conflict with other packages. I wanted to be safe and happy instead I have made a mess, thanks for correcting me, though. Thanks.
Ok, now it looks to me that I have installed all the pakcages that I need correct as the below terminal output shows, fingers crossed.
[root@localhost john]# rpm -qa python
[root@localhost john]# rpm -qa perl
[root@localhost john]# rpm -qa php
[root@localhost john]# rpm -qa mysql
