However, I have an issue. I set up a site on our dedicated box to install XF and noticed I need MySQLi installed, so I can't proceed.
I have a dedicated machine running WHM cPanel. I see EasyApache. I see MySQLi under the Exhaustive Options List. However, this is new to me as I've never done the Apache/PHP/MySQL build or install myself. I've done a number of Google Searches and can't seem to figure out how to install MySQLi without a new build of everything. Several months ago I hired someone to optimize my server (and I can't seem to contact him) and I'm not sure how to install MySQLi without wiping that out.
So I have two questions:
1. How can I install MySQLi without risking the chance of screwing up my server optimization?
2. Will installing MySQLi cause any problems or conflicts for an existing VBulletin site/database running presently?
