I've got SS3 on my shared hosting working fine, but not on my VPS. It's saying that mysql isn't install - when i know it is!

SilverStripe has the module installed, but PHP is missing the required extension
The PHP extension is missing, please enable or install it.

Does anyone know exactly what extension it's looking for? My own php script says 'Your SQL version is 5.0.95' which should be fine.

It's looking for the MySQLi extension.
