I cannot successfully install!

I am pretty sure my PHP 5.3.14 and mySQL 5.1.63 are working ( www.vmcrad.org/phpinfo.php ) but when I try to do an install using vmcrad.org/quiz it fails to allow me to configure a mySQL database, or any database as far as I can tell. Is this possibly an installer error as the host seems to think the DBO driver for mySQL is fine.

I would like to get this working as soon as possible, otherwise I will need to go to the main stable releases.

Are the bar chart statistics now working on RC7?

Thanks,

You have to have a PDO mysql driver installed. If it is proper installed in your phpinfo would show up sections named PDO and pdo_mysql.

I found this: After 2-3 hours of googling,found out that it happens because PDO is part of php 5.3(which is my current verison).Since php 5.3 pdo has been moved from pecl to php-core.You can cross check it by listing the configured modules in php

At a terminal level, when I type php -m in looks like PDO is actually installed. You are welcome to try the install at vmcrad.org/quiz.

Here is the output:

I contacted the host and agreed with you that for some reason a driver was missing. Will try again soon, but seems as though you may be correct.
