Hi!

I am installing 3.0.3.8 on HostingUK shared hosting. It is failing at step 3 with a red error:
Failed to connect to database. Reason: 'could not find driver'
The only DB Driver listed in the dropdown is DBO.

phpinfo shows PDO is enabled - see attachment.

Any ideas on how to move forward please?

Thank you! :-*

Your PDO drivers section should have mysql and sqlite. You may be able to enable the pdo_mysql PHP extension in your hosting control panel. If not ask your host.
