Here is the error on frontend and backend:

“Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘Zend_Db_Adapter_Exception’ with message ‘pdo_mysql extension is not installed’ in /home/nick/public_html/lib/Varien/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php:81 Stack trace: #0 /home/nick/public_html/lib/Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php(390): Varien_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Mysql->_connect() #1 /home/nick/public_html/lib/Zend/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Abstract.php(206): Zend_Db_Adapter_Abstract->query(’SET NAMES utf8’, Array) #2 /home/nick/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Resource/Type/Db/Pdo/Mysql.php(39): Zend_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Abstract->query(’SET NAMES utf8’) #3 /home/nick/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Resource.php(77): Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Type_Db_Pdo_Mysql->getConnection(Object(Mage_Core_Model_Config_Element)) #4 /home/nick/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Mysql4/Abstract.php(241): Mage_Core_Model_Resource->getConnection(’core_read’) #5 /home/nick/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Mysql4/Abstract.php(256): Mage_Core_Model_Mysql4_Abstract->_getConnection(’read’) #6 /home/nick/public_html in /home/nick/public_html/lib/Varien/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php on line 81”

As mentioned, i have had the site up for months working fine and today i get this.  I am hosted through hostgator and the server is running php 5.2.6.  What could cause this and how can i fix it?  Im gonna try to do research in the meantime, but thought someone may have some suggestions or comments.

Thx for any insight anyone can provide!
