I installed joomla successfully but it can not open the administrator page "Myjoomlasite/joomla30/administrator" and showing the error "Error displaying the error page: Application Instantiation Error: The MySQL adapter mysqli is not available". Please help.

MySQL adapter mysqli is not available could depend from php configuration
so you could ask your host to enable mysqli support
or
check your php.ini and make sure that PHP has mysqli support enabled
or
In configuration.php change

Code: Select all

public $dbtype = 'mysql';

to

Code: Select all

public $dbtype = 'mysqli';   

or
?

You need go to Cpanel, then choose the PHP version, when you choose the PHP version, there are modules which allow you to install.

You need to tick the [Mysqli]

mySQL improvement extension is not installed on the server.

If it's your own server with cPanel.
Login to WHM and go to easyapache, here you add mySQLi and start automatic php compile.
