Error PDOException could not find driver

0 votes

I have just installed Debian Lenny with Apache, MySQL, and PHP and I am receiving an error:

PDOException could not find driver

This is the specific line of code:

$dbh = new PDO('mysql:host=' . DB_HOST . ';dbname=' . DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_PASS)

DB_HOST, DB_NAME, DB_USER, and DB_PASS are constants that I have defined. It works fine on the production server (and on my previous Ubuntu Server setup).

Is this something to do with my PHP installation?
