Installation on ubuntu xenial


I am trying to install the cms on ubuntu 16 (xenial)
and the xibo installation said "MySQL support must be enabled in PHP."
I have installed the php-mysql dependencies and the phpmyadmin is working.
Is it the installation test who is wrong ?


Ubuntu V16 Uses a new version of PHP (v7) if I remember correctly. You will need to remove 7 and downgrade to version 5.6.

This might help you:

Thank you !

it ok with this :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install php7.0 php5.6 php5.6-mysql php-gettext php5.6-mbstring php-xdebug libapache2-mod-php5.6 libapache2-mod-php7.0
sudo apt-get install apache2 mysql-server php php-mysql php5.6-gd phpmyadmin libapache2-mod-php php5.6-curl php5.6-zip php5.6-xml php5.6-soap php-mbstring php-gettext php5.6-mcrypt

Your welcome.

Does that mean you now have it working?

yes But I just realize that there is no longer linux client :cry:

I have Ubuntu 16, PHP7, and Xibo 1.7 – and Xibo prerequisite checker fails on
MySQL database (PHP MySql) MySQL support must be enabled in PHP.

Interested in when PHP7 will be supported versus having to downgrade PHP to 5.x
