I just attempted my first ever installation of Opencart and encountered this issue.

The solution was to install the MySQLi extension for PHP.

This was not previously necessary for Opencart - I had three other installations of Opencart (earlier versions) on the same server, all running fine.

Step 3 of the installation wizard, where you enter the database logon credentials, has a select list at the top with the label "DB Driver".

When I tried it, that list was not populated. After installing MySQLi, it appeared in the list.

If you are running Linux and you have access to the full suite of WHM functions, you can install MySQLi by going to WHM > Software > EasyApache and you can build a new profile, to include MySQLi, from there. If you don't have any idea what that means or you're using Windows, then you'll need to contact your hosting company and ask them to install it or move you to a different server.
