Missing PHP support for MySQL not checked for by Installer

Description

When trying to install, after specifying the database info, the following error occured:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in ............/kalturaCE/install/general_info.php on line 180

This was fixed by my installing php5-mysql (this is on Ubuntu).

Perhaps the existence of PHP support for MySQL could be checked for by the installer?

Alon,
Thanks for posting this issue.

Added a requirement for php-mysql support.
The requirement is being tested/verified during the requirements check (function_exists('mysql_connect'))
and will not let user continue without mysql support in PHP.

Fix will be included in next release.
