Piwik-website reintegration after hosting migration

We switched our website and email host recently and haven’t been able to access our piwik page since. When we to try access it, we get the following error:

"Cannot connect to the database:

The mysql driver is not currently installed"

I’m not familiar with Piwik, nor am I particularly tech-savvy. Our website is a Wordpress site, and we do have the Piwik plugin installed. If anyone could shed some light on what’s happened and how to fix it, we would be very appreciative.


The error is pretty straight forwarded. The MySQL php module isn’t installed on your Webserver.
If you are using Debian or Ubuntu you can fix it by installing the php-mysql package and restarting php.
