PHP 5.0.5 does not support the mysqli extension, which is the default extension used by Drupal for mysql database access. A work-around for this issue is to modify $db_url in settings.php and specify mysql:// rather than mysqli://.

You are a victim of this bug if you see the following types of errors:

Warning: Couldn't fetch mysqli in /home/thengthi/public_html/includes/database.mysqli.inc on line 329
