Yesterday I delete some files to clean up my storage. After that, I face the following error while visiting my website.

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

I delete my WordPress Old Setup and Install New one, but the problem still exists. What's the possible solution to recover my website. Thank you

The solution to this will require server level changes, this isn't something you can fix by changing PHP files. Your host needs to install the mysqli PHP extension
