Moving Perch to new server

hi there, i'm in the process of moving a site i had successfully built using perch on our server to my clients own server. Database all set up OK but when I run the perchtest i get this message Fatal error: Class 'mysqli' not found in /home/mlambert2/public_html/perchtest/lib/PerchDB_MySQLi.class.php on line 27 really not sure what this means or what to do - can you help please? ---

Did you try running the Perch compatibility test on the client's own server? Maybe also check the levels of PHP and mySQL on that server?

Perch requires either mysqli or pdo for database connections. The compatibility test will flag up if you do not have one of those.
