Installation error

I am attempting to install PKP Open Archives Harvester but I receive the following error:

Code: Select all
PKP Open Archives Harvester: Installation

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mysql_create_db() in /home/find/include/db/db.mysql.inc.php on line 52

Is there a step I am missing? Step two is confusing to me, it is telling me to make the file include/db.php writeable by the web server, but I see no such file. Thanks for the help. Here is my server information:

"include/db.php" is a typo; it should be "include/db.inc.php".

The mysql_create_db() function is not available in MySQL 4.1; either downgrade MySQL client library versions or patch db.inc.php similarly to how it is suggested here for OJS 1.x.
