When setting up a server application built in PHP, it is not uncommon for a few configurations not to be configured. One such problem is when the PDO extension hasn’t been enabled.

Option 1

First option is to check your php info if you have PDO extension enabled. If it is not, just put the following lines in php.ini file.


Try your application again. If it works, then hurray!

Option 2

You may not have PDO installed. A quick an easy way to install PDO especially when you are going to use MySQL, is to install php-mysql. This will install the dependency, php-pdo.

yum install php-mysql


All new configurations will not be set unless we restart the server:

service httpd restart
