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.



I was finally able to do it through easyapache…

I also tried this: <pre> yum install php-mysqli </pre> And get this: <pre> Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
