Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a new CentOS 6 server running PHP 5.3.2. The output of php -v shows

Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib64/php/modules/pdo_mysql.so - 
/usr/lib64/php/modules/pdo_mysql.so cannot open shared object file

I modified /etc/php.ini to include extension=pdo.so and extension=pdo_mysql.so and restarted httpd. I did install PDO and phpinfo.php shows pdo_sqllite installed?? How do I install pdo_mysql and rectify above warning message?
