SOLVED: See xabbu’s comment below. Many thanks to Xabbu.
I am running PHP locally on Manjaro 20. PHP runs (eg phpinfo runs fine). However my application won’t because there seems to be a problem with PDO. It was working just fine and I have not made any changes to the PHP configuration since I installed and configured PHP. It is possible that something has been changed by a recent update (how could I tell?).
The issue seems to be a missing ‘pdo’ module (see the output of php -v below). php -m shows that there is a ‘PDO’ module, but not a ‘pdo’ module. There is no pdp.so or PDO.so in /usr/lib/php/modules/.
Your suggestions would be most welcome.
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library ‘pdo’ (tried: /usr/lib/php/modules/pdo (/usr/lib/php/modules/pdo: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory), /usr/lib/php/modules/pdo.so (/usr/lib/php/modules/pdo.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)) in Unknown on line 0
