    Also, if i go to mysite.com/install, the install page would come up, asking you for basic info such as: site title, tagline, etc. But after than, they'll ask you for database info, once you enter database info, and hit next, a blank white page would come up, so im guessing that's where the PDO PHP extension comes in ?

    The PDO extension is a must have extension for modern PHP apps and has to do with database access. Actually, it 's installed by default on PHP > 5.1.0 - How old is your VPS installation? :eek:

    If your VPS is semi-managed or managed, ask your host to install it.

    If your VPS is unmanaged, the instructions depend on the OS. I assume it 's Linux, but which flavor? There are different packet managers depending on what you 've installed.

    My suggestion is to have your PHP upgraded and the upgrade should install PDO.
