Support » Installing WordPress » SQL Extension problem

  • Hi, Having problems installing WordPress. When I goto install.php, I get: “Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.”

    I am hosting through I have setup the MySQL Database, is there something else I need to enable? Thanks, Joe.

  • You will need to change/upgrade your account to a Linux plan for WordPress to work.

    How to upgrade your existing hosting plan with GoDaddy.
    1. Login to your account at
    2. Hover over Hosting & Servers, click on My Hosting Account
    3. Click on your domain name under the Hosting Account column
    4. On the right, click on Upgrade/Downgrade Hosting Plan
    5. Select the new plan. Any plan with Linux will also work.

    Also, please note WordPress does not work with accounts that Godaddy calls “Free with Domain”.
