"You need to enable the PDO and PDO_MYSQL extensions in your php.ini file. "

in php.ini i still have this problem!
and the server admin doesn’t know about Pdo_Mysql extension! style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif

Your system may simply not have those extensions.

You could ask your admin to rebuild php with those extensions enabled or find another host.

is there another way???

Self-hosting is another option.

There are also third-parties working on (or interested in) Postgresql and MySQLi forks/ports.

is it possible to install piwik on a server and use this for another site on another server?

Yes.
