[solved] I try to install playsms 1.3.1 on Kubuntu 16.04 and have the error "DB Error: extension not found"

I try to install playsms 1.3.1 on Kubuntu 16.04.
At the end playsms is installed but does not start. Error reported: “DB Error: extension not found”,
I followed the first method (with the script)
Here are the packages that I installed:
sudo apt-get install apache2 mysql-server-cli php7.0 php7.0 php7.0 php7.0-mysql-cgi php-pear-php7.0 gd php-gettext libapache2-mod-php-db php7.0 PHP- email php7.0-mbstring php7.0-curl-php7.0 php7.0 mcrypt phpmyadmin git-imap
What to do ?

later try the master version: (green, on the right page, combo for download

for now you can try to change config.php, change:
$core_config['db']['type'] = 'mysql';

$core_config['db']['type'] = 'mysqli';


Hello Mr. Anton
I did what you said, changing in config.php
$core_config [ 'db'] ['type'] = 'mysql';

$core_config [ 'db'] ['type'] = 'mysqli';

Now it works, playsmsd starts.
thank you very much

where is the config.php file

Create new post, with your own issue, this thread is too old, thx
