Apache2/PHP MySQL extension doesn't work/exist?

Hello, I’m trying to enable the mysql extension to run connect to databases via PHP but I cannot find the extensions for it in the control panel, or know how to enable it for PHP/Apache2

example of what PHP returns:

PHP is saying the MySQL Module doesn’t exist (MySQL itself works fine)

How can I enable it?


I’m not sure which distro you’re using – but it sounds like you need either to install either the php5-mysql of php-mysql package (which one depends on your distro).
