I tried to install SS 3 with a MySQL Database on a Debian 6 Server. I get The error. "The PHP extension is missing, please enable or install it."
My other sites on that Webserver works fine (SS 2.4). a php -me shows that the mysql extension is loaded (mysql and mysqli).

Why did SS 3 not recognize that the module it loaded. If there anything wrong in my php.init?

Haver anybody a hint for me?

I have the same problem with SS3. I have a dedicated suse-linux root server hosted by Strato. My phpinfo() shows mysql, pdo, pdo_mysql and pdo_sqlite but i get the error "The PHP extension is missing, please enable or install it". MySql is version 5.0.26. The Server is localhost. If anybody can help me?

I solved my problem. SS3 looks for mysqli - Extension. After installing this extension, the database problem was solved
