Could not find driver

i’m having issues installing Gibbon v12. Getting error message (Could not find driver. A database connection could not be established. Please try again) can someone help?

Hello, and welcome to the Gibbon community. This is most likely to do with you not having PDO, or the PDO mySQL driver, installed installed in PHP. What kind of server environment do you have?

Ubuntu server 14.04

yes admin, you right.

fix it…
apt-get install php5-mysql
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Thanks for sharing the solution! This is really useful for others who come along after you.

If you are using 16.04, by default, you would be using php7, and so the command might be different.

I am using windows 10 and i am facing the same error.
how can i fix that in windows 10.
please help me.
Thank You

ehsan, please can you let us know what server stack you are using under Windows 10? XAMPP? WAMP? MAMP? Thanks, Ross.

Thank You Ross
I am using Xampp

and one more thing, on xampp Database Password * is required, where my database password is none in Xampp.
what should i do?

eshan, it seems like you have also posted the driver query elsewhere on the forum: we have now answered the question on the other post. In future, please try and post questions once, and then wait for the answer: multiple posts increases the overhead for us in terms of helping everyone.

In terms of the database password question, please post this as a separate thread (this helps keep the forum organised and easier to use), and we will answer it there.

Thank You,
I will remember that.
