    Today I updated to PhP 5.4.38 and now my forums are not working. It throws a DB error.
    An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.
    I needed to upgrade to get another thing on my site working but I also need the forums. Is there anyway to fix this?

    The URL in your customer area doesn't appear to work. However, view the source of that page and you'll see a more specific error message in the comments.

    View the page source, it may show the reason.

    I'm on Android so can't check.

    Ah, thanks I never knew that. Is there a PhP mysql extension? I hired a guy to setup my VPS last time.

    EDIT1: Just tried "yum install php-mysqli" is there anything else I need to do?

    EDIT2: That's all I needed! Thank you so much both of you.
