I’m trying to connect to a database that I have just set up and configured.
I’m using PDO but is dosen’t seem to work, I get this error message:
ERROR: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can't connect to MySQL server on 'xxxxxxxxx' (111) Notice: Undefined variable: pdo in /var/www/html/xxxx/xxxx on line 21
I read in another thread that errors like these might be caused by the fact that PDO dosen’t come installed with the standard mysql installation?
How can I install PDO? My version of PHP is PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.14
