My Forum is Down

I haven't been viewing my site over the past couple of months. Today I decided to take a look to see if anyone had made any posts on my forum. However, when I clicked on all the links I had set up, the following error message came up:

"Fatal error: Class 'PDO' not found in /home/csumme5/public_html/ on line 54"

It was functioning the last time I checked. Now it isn't. Any ideas as to what happened? Thanks.

    Most likely the php of your webhost (website) is not compiled with PDO. Very interesting. Check with your host.
    Prepare to re-upload your files and also answer the question : Which version of Vanilla are you using? If it's lower than prepare to upgrade. It won't solve your problem, but that's one of the steps to take anyway :-)

  • well if it was functioning before your host has clearly disabled, or removed PDO, or perhaps installed a whole new setup without telling you.

    do you have php.ini (unlikely on cheap hosts)?

    grep is your friend.

    Yep, upgrade of PHP version and forgot to install (compile) PDO with it?

  • Thanks guys for your input. I went in my hosting account (Inmotion Hosting) and discovered that it is not listed as one of my applications I have downloaded and installed. I'm hoping they will be able to give me some insight. In the meantime, I will work with them to try and resolve the issue. I was unable to find the php.ini file. I really appreciate your comments.
