    "Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress." I got it after trying to upload a new theme. Can someone help me out where should i check? or what should i fix?

    It seems this has something to do with your Cpanel, and not just this themes. But to be entirely sure, you can try uploading another theme, and if you encounter this error, then contact your Host customer support, but if you did not encounter the error, then it might be from a file in the theme.

    Goodluck

    chatting with the CSR of my host now, and it seems they are also busy looking for answers as why... ill recommend @hawkster article to them. It might help them to narrow down where to focus. :)

    Is this on a VPS or a shared hosting? If its in a VPS, you can go to your WHM, and install the extra extensions required. If its on a shared hosting, your host will do it for you for free.

    From the stackoverflow, this seems to fix the problem. https://wordpress.org/plugins/mysqli/

    Else, as I said, you can get all the related mysql extensions installed either by the host, or yourself.

    If you're on a shared hosting I'd try to switch between different PHP versions as some of them might be compiled with mysqli support and others might not.
