How to resolve Package php-mysql is obsoleted by php-mysqlnd?

Plesk for Windows supports Microsoft SQL and MySQL.

The Plesk Platform includes extensions for Backup, DNS, Cloud, Security, and Server Tools.

And its control panel allows its users to set up new websites, reseller accounts, email accounts, edit and create DNS entries, and many more, through a web-base interface.

PHP is a server-side scripting language, hence it creates significant dynamic pages with customize features.

One of the main benefits of using PHP and MySQL is, it provides an interactive, user-friendly website.

And also facilitates visitors to openly interact while producing a genuinely dynamic and flexible content.
