It seems my server doesn't have mysqli. How can I install it? I tried to follow the instructions on by running the following command:
./configure --with-mysql=/usr –with-mysqli=/usr/bin/mysql_config
It returns:
-bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Setting up Install Process
No package php-mysqli available.
Error: Nothing to do
I was finally able to do it through easyapache...

which package to install to get MySQLi ?

Hi @adha - you have to recompile using EasyApache - go to advanced settings during the process and from there you can select the MySQLi extension.
