I'm trying to get myself up and running with Joomla for the first time, I've installed the full LAMP stack and navigated to my joomla install by going to the local host in my browser 127.0.0.1/joomla.
Joomla install screen displays good. I am able to successfully get past first install screen "Configuration"
Problem appears in second screen "Database Configuration"
The "Database Type*" combo box has no options, just "None". MySQL is installed on the machine and the service is running, so why would this be?
