i just uploaded my files to godaddy. they were on another hosting server.
i changed the DNS to point to godaddy' servers. i am getting the following error when you look up the website.

Fatal error: Call to undefined method MDB2_Error::setFetchMode() in /home/content/f/o/r/fordag/html/fordagencyinsurance/ on line 34

i am not able to see any of my files or pages.
everything should be exactly as on the other website.

i am using godaddy's deluxe hosting package linux version
i think it may be something with the mysql settings with godaddy?
does anyone know aything about this error?

    go daddy doesn't have that pear package installed. you most likely won't be able to get it installed either unless you upgrade to godaddy's VPS service.

    MDB2 is not something that gets installed with PHP by default. Its a separate package that you have to install once you get PHP installed. Since you're on a shared hosting at godaddy, I don't believe you have the ability to install this. I could be wrong though as I've never used it but most of those shared hosting providers don't let you modify anything that is installed except via .htaccess or something. Thats why I suggested a VPS, but you have to know how to configure all that yourself.
