Error message after initial PHP code

After typing the initial PHP code, I get a 'could not find driver' error message. I typed the code exactly how it appears. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

sorry, <?php ini_set('display_errors', 'On');

$db = new PDO('sqlite:./database.db');

Are you using Workspaces? That works for me in that environment - perhaps Treehouse already fixed the error if you are using this platform.

If you're using your own host, it's likely that an Sqlite driver isn't installed at all.
