Hi there
Have just downloaded opencart and am going through the installation process. When entering my database details I get a few errors.
I am running XAMMP on localhost until ready to go live.
I only have Mysql and not MYSQLI which I think the errors are referring to. There is no option to select Mysql in the dropdown when setting up database details.
Can anyone help please

You should install XAMMP with the 7.0 or higher php version. Forget php5.

I.5 won't install on PHP 7 with the standard install folder. You need the updated one in the marketplace. ... earch=php7
