How to check if PDO support is enabled in my Apache Installation?

How to check if PDO support is enabled in my Apache Installation?

I am using a shared hosting through They use cpanel. I am trying to deploy a ZEND app on my website. However it keeps giving the error.

An error occurred Application error Exception information:  Message: The PDO extension is required for this adapter but the extension is not loaded Stack trace:  #0 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/library/Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php(770): Zend_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Abstract->_connect() #1 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/library/Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php(840): Zend_Db_Adapter_Abstract->quote('windchimes', NULL) #2 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/library/Zend/Auth/Adapter/DbTable.php(354): Zend_Db_Adapter_Abstract->quoteInto('`password` = MD...', 'windchimes') #3 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/library/Zend/Auth/Adapter/DbTable.php(285): Zend_Auth_Adapter_DbTable->_authenticateCreateSelect() #4 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/library/Zend/Auth.php(117): Zend_Auth_Adapter_DbTable->authenticate() #5 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/application/controllers/LoginController.php(117): Zend_Auth->authenticate(Object(Zend_Auth_Adapter_DbTable)) #6 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/library/Zend/Controller/Action.php(503): LoginController->processAction() #7 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/library/Zend/Controller/Dispatcher/Standard.php(285): Zend_Controller_Action->dispatch('processAction') #8 /home/cubeeeco/worminc/library/Zend/Controller/Front.php(934): Zend_Controller_Dispatcher_Standard->dispatch(Object(Zend_Controller_Request_Http), Object(Zend_Controller_Response_Http)) #9 /home/cubeeeco/public_html/worm/index.php(47): Zend_Controller_Front->dispatch() #10 {main} 

Also when I try to print out the phpinfo I get:

This can be seen at

However when I get back to my hosting providers, they tell me that they have modified the php.ini to enable the PDO support and they will check again. What is it that I need to do or ask my hosts to do?

Can php5 coexist with php4?


mysql access without webserver (ex. Apache)
The configure command in your PHP output shows:.
Protect Plesk login page from search engine eyes
so I think it's safe to assume that they haven't enabled it..
Rewrite for all URLs

If you use https will your url params will be safe from sniffing? [duplicate]

mod_rewrite issue


PHP include() affected by mod_rewrite
if (!defined('PDO::ATTR_DRIVER_NAME')) { echo 'PDO unavailable'; } elseif (defined('PDO::ATTR_DRIVER_NAME')) { echo 'PDO available'; } 
I hope this works .
Rails page caching with Apache and capistrano


Does this application want Pdo_Mysql? If so you may be able to use the Mysqli adapter instead - it depends on the software but it's possible.. In the area where you set your database connection details, there's probably an option called 'adapter'.

Try setting its value to 'mysqli'.
