I have drupal running perfectly; with mysql support. But CiviCRM still giving me this error - “MySQL support not included in PHP.”

My PHP version is 5.6.31, as indicated in the screenshot below.

Your drupal may be using a different mysql driver. CiviCRM recently migrated to requiring mysqli. See https://civicrm.org/blog/totten/psa-please-verify-php-extension-mysqli for more details.

  • In which version of civi they have migrated to mysqli? Aug 2, 2017 at 13:13
  • I recompiled php with --with-mysqli and it is working now. Aug 2, 2017 at 13:31
