because of an update process of an older Moodle 3.0 site, I have to
install also Moodle 126.96.36.199.
However, an installation of a plain Moodle 188.8.131.52 (downloaded from moodle.org)
the first error message is on the web interface during the install process saying:
"Your database has tables using Antelope as the file format. Full UTF-8 support in MySQL and MariaDB requires the Barracuda file format. Please convert the tables to the Barracuda file format. See the documentation Administration via command line for details of a tool for converting InnoDB tables to Barracuda."
So I tried to convert the tables the prescribed way with "admin/cli/check_database_schema.php" getting
the next error-msg (on the shell)
#/var/www/html/moodle3117# php admin/cli/check_database_schema.php
!!! <p>Error: database driver problem detected</p>
<p>The site administrator should verify server configuration</p><p>PHP has not been properly configured with the MySQLi extension for it to communicate with MySQL. Please check your php.ini file or recompile PHP.</p> !!!
So my guess that mysql extension for php is missing on the shell
in the following mysqlnd and mysqli are missing
#/var/www/html/moodle3117# php -m
can you tell how to get moodle installed here ?
How to enable mysqli / mysqlnd ? php7.0-mysql is installed , it includes php-mysqli
I also tried to use mariadb - driver in the config.php. same result !
Thanks for help and hints!
