To enable the PDO (PHP Data Objects) extension on your hosting provider, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Contact your hosting provider and inquire about the process to enable the PDO extension on your hosting account. Some hosting providers may require you to submit a support ticket or request this change through their control panel.
  2. If your hosting provider uses cPanel or a similar control panel, you can usually enable the PDO extension through the "PHP Selector" or "PHP Settings" section. Look for an option to enable or disable PHP extensions and locate the PDO extension in the list. Check the box next to the PDO extension to enable it.
  3. If you have access to the php.ini file on your server, you may also be able to enable the PDO extension manually. Locate the php.ini file in your hosting account (often found in the root directory or a folder named "etc") and add the following line:
1
extension=pdo.so


Save the changes to the php.ini file and restart the web server to apply the changes.

  1. After enabling the PDO extension, you can verify that it is working correctly by creating a PHP script that uses PDO to connect to a database. If there are any issues, contact your hosting provider for further assistance.


By following these steps, you should be able to enable the PDO extension on your hosting provider and start using PDO in your PHP applications.
