WebFaction
Community site: login faq

So, Drupal 7 really likes PDO. However, doing a fresh install of Drupal 7 beta 1 on Webfaction leads to database errors which can be traced back to this:

http://drupal.org/requirements/pdo (see the "Troubleshooting" section at the bottom)

It appears that Webfaction is running the outdated PECL PDO. Any input on how we can update this ourselves or if there will be an update through Webfaction?

Thanks guys. (Btw, I love this new StackOverflow help system!)

We're currently rolling out changes to our PHP environment that will resolve the PDO compatibility issue for Drupal 7, but I can't give a precise ETA for your server. It should be soon.

If you need something immediately, then you can use one of our build_php_worker scripts to build your own Apache and PHP from source and serve Drupal 7 from that. I can't guarantee that you won't need to tweak the scripts to get what you need.

Glad you like the new system :)

Rock on. I hope it's soon because the Drupal 7 stable release is right around the corner.

.

Haha, ok, that was a joke. You guys have all the time in the world :P (/ducks the shoes thrown by the Drupal dev team)

For anyone else curious about this, I just got a copy of RC4 installed with no trouble at all. I'm new to Drupal, so someone with an actual clue might want to follow this up if something's still lurking. I haven't yet gone any further than "yep, it installed."
(I'm on web142, if it ends up mattering.)

@Su, thanks for the update. Anybody install D7 after last nights release?

Would love to see D7 as an auto-install webfaction app.
