WordPress MySQL error when switch to PHP 7.2

WordPress MySQL error when switching to PHP 7.2 – Easy Fix

I changed my PHP from 7.1 to 7.2 at my host Guru Cloud.  I noticed that my WordPress site was no longer working, I got the error:

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

I switched back to 7.1 and it was working fine.  I searched around and found the easy fix.

In cPanel, go to Select PHP Version and add the permission for mysqli and save.  After a refresh, the WordPress site was working fine.  I checked with my host, they said this was all that was required and will default that to the config for PHP 7.2.

Watch this video for a quick demo on what to change.
