I attempted installing Wordpress using wp-cli (as I commonly do).
But I can’t install due to it coming back with the error, “Error: Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.”
The website has PHP 7.3 assigned to it, and as far as I can tell the MySQL module is installed (as one would expect). I double checked that using,
sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall | grep php which indicates
So I am at a loss as to what to do.
I’ve realised this issue is likely occurring because LS uses it’s own php version, lsphp73-mysql
wp-cli is testing for whether php73-mysql is installed, but it is not.
Can someone suggest a way around this? Or do I have to accept the only feasible way to install WP is via the Cyber control panel?
Yep, I suspect that’s the case.
I’ll find out if there’s a switch for wp-cli that can force it to install without checking for PHP related dependencies.
Do you have a solution? I encountered the same problem
Update your cyberpanel and then try will work.
