    Hi hi,

    Could someone help me out with the below error please? I have transferred a magento website over my new hosting and I am getting the below error. A little while ago I did enable PDO in the apache config and its working because I have other magento sites running on my server, but this is the only one I have transferred across. This error is when visiting the home page.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The error is :

    Hello :)

    Please check to see if you have any custom php.ini files located in the account's root or public_html directory. It could be taking priority over the default php.ini file on the system.

    Thank you.
