do you have access to php.ini ?? ( I doubt, because shared hosting does not allow user to change php.ini)

The simple answer is to call godaddy's customer support and request the changes, almost all webhosts allow changes to the php.ini file. Also, if you haven't already, check your hosting control panel for a way to modify the php.ini file - many control panels allow you to do this.

I have access to php.ini file, there is a php.ini file in the root directory of my website (i am attaching it in txt format, please have a look),

I made some changes and added 'extension=php_dbase.so' to it, but this did not worked....

Please tell me how to enable the Dbase module, so that my website can work.

php_dbase.so , you need this extenstion to be installed on the server

is this file is in /ext directory ??

do you have access to /ext directory ???

yes, problem is, you have added extenstion of php_dbase.so

but this php_dbase.so is not in extenstion direcotry

so you will have to install this php_dbase.so in your server ( i guess its linux server)

but do you have access to installa anything ?? i guess no

then you will have to speak with hosting company on this issue
