Fix-Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress

Usually, this error does occur when you are using an incompatible PHP version with your current version of WordPress or if you are using the outdated version of WordPress.  Changing the PHP version to a lower PHP version such as PHP 5.6 might solve this issue. Basically the cause of this issue is an outdated MySQL' extension which was depreciated from the PHP 7.0
