The Relational DAS requires that the SDO extension be installed.

+ an important fix for PDO. The most up-to-date information about
+ required levels of PHP should be found in the changelog for the
+ package on PECL. At the time of writing, though, the Relational
+ DAS requires the most recent beta level of PHP 5.1, that is
+ PHP 5.1.0b3.
+ The Relational DAS uses PDO to access the relational database,
+ and so should run with a variety of different relational databases,
+ but at the time of writing has only been tested with MySQL 4.1.
+ On Windows it operates correctly with the php_pdo_mysql driver
+ that comes with the pre-built binaries in PHP 5.1.0b3.
+ On Linux it is necessary to have the most up-to-date PDO
+ driver for MySQL. It may be necessary to uninstall the usual
+ driver that would have come from PECL (using
+ <command>pear uninstall pdo_mysql</command>
+ ) and to enable pdo_mysql when configuring PHP, in order to pick up
+ the recent version built in to PHP.
+ The Relational DAS applies changes to the database within
+ a user-delimited transaction: that is, it issues a call to PDO's
+ before beginning to apply changes, and
+ on completion.
+ Whichever database is chosen, the database and the PDO driver
+ for the database must support these calls.
