I’m having major issues. I keep getting an error that says “Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress.” I have visited a thread specifically addressing this issue and tried EVERYTHING that was in the thread – and nothing worked. HELP!
I host my site on a godaddy hosting account. It works great. As mentioned make sure you use the correct wp-config. user name and database name are the same (the name you gave it in the mysql config), correct password and use the correct mysql server. This varies with every database you create. It is in a mysql##.secureserver.com format.
