Trying to install MySQLi


How can I do that? I am not the master of the server. I was given some space, and noticed PHP/MySQL is enabled here, but not MySQLi.

mysqli is simply an extension of newer versions of mysql, not a separate environment, in short if the server has a current version of mysql, you would simply write your php scripts to use mysqli function as opposed to mysql functions

http://www.php.net should have plenty of documentation on mysqli implementation
