  You probably only need to run the bits that need php4-mysql in the
chroot.  I think that would be WordPress and maybe apache (unless you
can tell apache to chroot before spawning the php module).  MySQL
connects over a standard network socket, so WordPress can access it
regardless of whether it's chrooted or not.

  Disclaimer: I have never run WordPress on my computer and I know very
little about PHP or MySQL.
