PHP PostgreSQL Support


#1

Hello,

I have searched around and have not been able to find an answer to my question anywhere. I understand that Dreamhost does not intend to support hosting of PostgreSQL DBs anytime soon, but I am working on a project where i have to use pgSQL for the DB. Upon trying to connect to an externally hosted pgSQL DB i recieve an error that seems to indicate that the PHP that dreamhost provides was compiled without pgSQL support. Is there any way i can get around this issue?

Thanks alot.

You could try installing your own PHP:
