Version 2.1.1 PHP 7.0, no mysql

There is no Mysql option available for Database Type in the Configuration setup when running the installer. Only PDO::SQLite and SQLite3 are options. Is this because of PHP 7.0?

This might be because you only installed the "php7" package, and maybe not "php-mysqli" or other database backends. MySQL(i) can be missing from php7 depending on your distribution. This is not actually related to Serendipity then; it only shows those backend that are available to PHP.
