The mysqli extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration. Documentation PDF

If you get the following error:

  The mysqli extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration.

When you log in to your phpMyAdmin app, then the problem is that you do not have a line regaring mysqli in your php.ini.
Probabily you've just installed a FreeBSD web server and forget to rename php.ini-production file to php.ini file.

  cp /usr/local/etc/php.ini-production /usr/local/etc/php.ini

Then check to have the following section in your php.ini file:

[mysqli] section from php.ini
mysqli.max_persistent = -1
mysqli.allow_persistent = On
mysqli.max_links = -1
mysqli.cache_size = 2000
mysqli.default_port = 3306
mysqli.default_socket =
mysqli.default_host =
mysqli.default_user =
mysqli.default_pw =
mysqli.reconnect = Off
