MySQLi exception

I'm looking forward to giving Omeka a try, and think it will work great for our project. Unfortunately, I can't even get to the installation step. After editing the db.ini file (using localhost for the server) and uploading I receive this error "The Mysqli extension is required for this adapter but the extension is not loaded." When I review the phpMyAdmin section, I can see it says that the mysqli extension is available. Our host is NetLogistics, with MySQL 5.0, and PHP 5.0. I only have limited access through Plesk 8.0, and limited experience.

Any help would be appreciated.


You will need PHP version 5.2.4 or greater with both mysqli and exif extensions installed.
