    I get this error message when I go to run the install.

    I have followed the instructions and entered all of the info about my MySQL into the wp-config.php doc using text edit.

    I saved and uploaded the WordPress folder to my fetch account.

    Then I go to mydomain/wp-admin/install.php, and I get this error message:

    Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

    I’m not sure what to do – I have read the instructions 3 times now and redid everything that I was supposed to.

    Any insights? Please help!!!

    This error means that the server your site is on 1) isn’t running the software required to run WP or 2) that software isn’t configured properly. You need to talk to your web host about this.
