Prepare for the next Major Release of Joomla
Since version 3.7.0
Beginning with Joomla! 4.0 we are raising the minimum server requirements. If you are seeing this message then your current configuration does not meet these new minimum requirements.
The minimum requirements are the following:
MS SQL will not be supported
MySQL using the legacy `ext/mysql` PHP extension will not be supported, MySQLi or PDO MySQL must be used instead
Please contact your hosting provider to ask how you can meet these raised server requirements - it is usually a very simple change. If you already meet these new requirements, then this message will not be displayed.
