sqli.connect() not working

Posted April 2, 2014 2k views
When I use sqli.connect() I get the following error: "Call to undefined function mysqli_connect() in ..." It seems that sqli has not been installed or I have not set it up properly on the server. I have been googling around and reading different solutions, but I have yet to find a solution. Here is my phpinfo(): Can anyone share any light on this issue?

Just found the solution.

Apparently basic install of php does not come with these mysql connect functions.

"sudo apt-get install php5-mysql" solved it for me.
Glad you figured it out dante!
