How do I restart/reload apache? I have no clue what I am doing.

My site give me this error message.
"Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress."

To the best of my ability, I checked and the extension is in the PHP installation. 

I found somewhere else that I should try to restart/reload apache using this code:
sudo service apache2 reload

 

The problem is I have no idea what I'm doing and don't know where to enter that/access the server (if I can even do that.) Any help would be greatly appreciated?

Hi there,

Thank you for posting your question here. The way you can accomplish this may varry or you may not even have access to it. If you have a vps server, you can enable your ssh in your cpanel, connect to your server via ssh using software like putty or winscp. Log in using your credentials then enter the command given to you... the command can varry too... my server goes something like this $sudo service httpd restart
