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

in short if the server is running mysql 4.1.3 or greater (which is most likely the case) then mysqli functions should be available for use should have plenty of documentation on mysqli implementation
