I’ve just been installing Magento (which for some reason is a real pain!). I got a really random error message when trying to setup the database. I get an error message just saying:
"php extensions 0 must be loaded"
You need to edit app/code/core/Mage/Install/etc/config.xml changing:
<extensions> <pdo_mysql/> </extensions>
Given that this bug has been around since for about 3 years – surely Magento can fix it?
