This is an issue with your host.

Either ask them if they can turn on the pdo module or see if you can select SQL instead of SQLite for the database type.

On the second page of the installation where you choose the database type, if you can do it, the option will be there. If not, you can't.

Just the folder.
The only file that needs permissions set is the config.php file.

Sir ,
Thanks For The Answer To My questions .In My Case I Cannot Select ,But i Talked To the Server Hosting Guys They Told Me To do This

Find The Following Code in functions_install.php

function can_load_dll($dll)
{
return ((@ini_get('enable_dl') || strtolower(@ini_get('enable_dl')) == 'on') && (!@ini_get('safe_mode') || strtolower(@ini_get('safe_mode')) == 'off') && @dl($dll . '.' . PHP_SHLIB_SUFFIX)) ? true : false;
}

And Replace the Same With

function can_load_dll($dll)
{
return false;
return ((@ini_get('enable_dl') || strtolower(@ini_get('enable_dl')) == 'on') && (!@ini_get('safe_mode') || strtolower(@ini_get('safe_mode')) == 'off') && @dl($dll . '.' . PHP_SHLIB_SUFFIX)) ? true : false;
}

PS :
Any suggestions From you On This
