    All ready to run my new copy of XF and immediately dead in my tracks...
    • The required PHP extension MySQLi could not be found. Please ask your host to install this extension

    Oh well... It would have been nice to try. :oops:

    I have the same error. They are loading it on my site as we speak.

    Is there any alternative solution?

    Hosts should have it as standard now...its been around for years and actually improves server performance...seems stupid that some hosts don't install it.

    I'm on URLJet on a VPS. Since URLJet (whom I fricking LOVE, by the way!) advertises as a vBulletin client they apparently didn't feel the need to add it. But the email that I got from them did state that they were already aware of the limitation in XF and would be adding it. I think they know there's going to be a migration.

    By the way, this is in no way bagging on URLJet. Again, I love these guys!

    Most hosts -rarely- update their stuff; even the mainstreams are behind often enough.

    Guess I'm one of the few that like my customers enough to keep them using the latest and greatest stuff :p

    If you are on a VPS, why not install it yourself?

    URLJET might need to find a different market :D

    Some of us are on managed because we can't install it for ourselves. <---dedicated here

    Managed can't install? My bad, I didn't know that....

    Last time I tried that I brought down the whole works. I recently lost my tech admin so I'm walking very softly.

    I would be glad to sort this out for you, on your VPS / dedicated server.

    I could if I knew how, I don't know how and my tech admin is unavailable so I am asking my host, it's why we pay for managed.

    My host installed it for me.

    Peggy, mine is installing it for me right now. I put in a support ticket and had an answer within 10 mins telling me what they needed to do. :)

    IIRC CentOS/Fedora/RHEL users can just run 'yum install php-mysqli' and then do 'service apache restart' once done. Don't quote me on it though as I use my own automated shell script for my server setups.

    personally I used sudo apt-get install php-mysqli , but yes, it should take a few minutes at most...

    Yup that'll be good for Debian/Ubuntu. Out of the box apt-get isnt on any of the other 'major' Linux distros tho (same with yum - its only on RedHat based distros like CentOS/Fedora).
