This is just a quick tip for those who come later having experienced this error, JError Unable to load Database Driver.
I was in the process of migrating a new client's site from GoDaddy (hate it, as it sucks with Joomla) to their new Hostgator server (love it, it's tuned up great for Joomla) using Akeeba Backup. The process went as normal (database updated just fine) until I tried to access the admin and home pages.
I saw nothing but a white page with, "JError Unable to load Database Driver" across the left side. Not good.
Just to be sure I made another backup, created a new mysql database and tried it again... same result. [read more for the solution]Tags: Joomla Troubleshooting, Joomla Help, Joomla Tips Read More
