I can see the pdo_mysql is not installed with php 7.4
while it is installed for php 8.x

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

simply try to install any website on php 7.4 and click on details link on localwp

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @zakir

You’re correct that this is missing, which I addressed in another thread here. Because PHP 7.4 reached EOL in Nov, 2022, we have no plans on re-compiling it with this extension.
