How to install MySQLi on MacOS


I cannot find instructions about installing MySQLi on a Mac. Just to be clear, MySQL is up to date and I am running PHP 5. How do I install it? Where do I even get it from? Thanks for your help. I'll be giving an up vote and a check mark to whoever answers this!

The Best Answer is


MySQLi is part of PHP. There should be a php-mysqli type package available, or you can take the PHP source and recompile that mysqli enabled. You may already have it installed, but it's done as a module and is disabled. Check your php.ini for or similar. it may be commented out, or the .so file is present in your extensions directory but not linked to PHP via that extension= directive.

Use php-mysqlnd instead of php-mysql. On Linux, to install with apt-get type:

apt-get install php-mysqlnd
