PHP and MySQL work fine in a chroot. I don't know where you
read that it doesn't. Search the archives. Do your homework
before you post.

Be very careful here - OpenBSD has the best documentation of
any Operating system I have ever used. The developers work
hard to make it complete and clear.
Read the Faq. Read the man pages. Read them again.
Just pkg_add the php4 and mysql-server packages. Figure out
how to put the mysql socket in the chroot (ie, under
/var/www/). That's it.
With PHP and mysql, the chroot breaks using sendmail. That's
about it. Just use pear's mailer.
