      Description

      For years the default driver for external DB has been mysql, but now that it is outdated and deprecated in newer versions of PHP we should change this default as a lot of people will just leave it on the default (if they are connecting to a mysql db)

      This is a precursor to MDL-51928 that requires less work and no messing with third party libraries.
