SOLVED Wordpress is reporting that the MySQL extension is missing, but EasyApache shows it installed. What's wrong here?

I've just completed the process of transferring all account from an old WHM server to a new one for a client. Everything appears to have worked perfectly. However, I'm getting the following error in WordPress:

Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

But when I look at EasyApache, I can see that php7*-php-mysqlnd is installed and activated. What am I missing here?
