Hi I am a novice at this stuff so that might explain the following:
During my Drupal 8 install I received the following:
The libmysqlclient driver version 5.6.26 is less than the minimum required version. Upgrade to libmysqlclient version 5.5.3 or up, or alternatively switch mysql drivers to MySQLnd version 5.0.9 or up.
So when I tried to install mysqlnd it was conflicting with mysql, so I carried out the following command
yum remove mysql and after removal, I installed mysqlnd with
yum install php70w-mysqlnd (I have php 7 installed)
I was then able to complete the Drupal install, but when I run
Drupal check, in Drupal console, it reports back:
The extension mysql is recommended to install
Then when I carry out
mysql -v the reply is:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 22
Server version: 5.6.31 MySQL Community Server (GPL).
Any advice would be welcomed, thank you.
