    View the page source and it will show the details of the error.

    Edit: I just checked and it's this:

    <!-- The Mysqli extension is required for this adapter but the extension is not loaded -->

    You will have to ask your host to install that.

    here's what my host said

    What kind of script you are using?

    We are using MariaDB. Make sure you are using updated script to work with MariaDB.

    MariaDB is a drop-in replacement for MySQL, there shouldn't be issues like this. Your host should know that..
    If you use cPanel, run EasyApache and enable MySQLi extension.
