I was able to access the WordPress installer via PHP 8.1 and MariaDB. I’m using Ubuntu Server 22.04. Since downgrading to PHP 8.0, an attempt to access the ClassicPress installer, I get the following message:
Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by ClassicPress.
I have tried following the compatibility list on WordPress.org here → Compatibility – Make WordPress Hosting with no luck. Because I thought it might have more to do with the PHP version than ClassicPress. Should I be going as low as MariaDB 10 in conjunction with the WordPress 4.9 version to have any success?
Thanks to any help!
Edit: Looks like I have a different problem as well. phpMyAdmin is no loner.
EDIT FIX AND NO FIX: I have everything working at PHP 8.1 and the ClassicPress Database setup is showing but for some reason it did not at PHP 8.0. Does anybody know how to properly spec this so it works with PHP 8.0 - the supported version?
EDIT: I’ve headed over to GitHub and I’m realizing I more than likely didn’t download the correct CP release for my situation. Ehh. Maybe not the problem. Will update.
Thought I solved the issue but realized I forgot to restart Apache… Sad. Might have to compile from source.
