This is a new install today. I've been googling, it looks like the file I am missing is php-mysql. However, I have mysqli.so checked in the extensions and there is a mysqli file which says :

extension=mysqli.so

So it might not be missing so much as not found. How do I get this connected?

update

1. there is no php.ini file in either 7.0 or 7.1
2. Opening the ini files I do have goes through WINE, which I hope is not a red flag
3. my ini files are in 5.3, 5.5, 'efront', and travis, inside phpmyadmin

I found php-7.1.ini in /usr/local/ampps/conf and copied it to /usr/local/ampps/php-7.1/etc/php.ini

but this DID NOT solve my problem. I get the same wordpress error. I am out of ideas.

Hi,

Try this:

Open AMPPS Panel --> PHP Settings --> Click on Restore Default Configuration.

My default was php 5.5, and almost NONE of your bundled programs can run on it. I got a VERY long list of apps that said they couldn't work with 5.5. So I don't see how restoring my defaults is going to help, nevertheless....

1. It did not reset me to 5.5, but left me with 7.1, which I find surprising, BUT
2. I still have exactly the same error: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.
