I have installed the EE stack successfully on a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04. I then uploaded an existing (functional) WP site that is running on an older version of WP (3.5). I know that the server is working fine as are all apps. However, when I try to bring up the site I get the following:
Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.
Although it shouldn’t be necessary, I added
extension = mysql.so
to the php.ini file. I also tried adding a separate php.ini file with the same aforementioned string in the htdocs folder. Neither had any effect on the problem. I have used EE and WP many times in the past and have never encountered this situation. Has anyone seen this before and, if so, were you able to resolve it?
