PDO (PHP Data Objects) extension for PHP seems to be the way to go for connecting to and accessing databases such as MySQL and with this little snippet you can easily see what PDO drivers are available for your site if any.

foreach (PDO::getAvailableDrivers() as $driver) {
if ($driver == NULL) {
echo "No PDO drivers were found!";
} else {
echo $driver."<br />";

PDO comes with PHP 5.1 and above as default.
