PHP version 5.2.3 is needed. this is the earliest version that introduced the mysql_set_charset function in php.

to work around the issue, edit the install_gallery/dignostic.php file, change:

if (strnatcmp(phpversion(),'5.2.3') >= 0){


if (strnatcmp(phpversion(),'5.2.0') >= 0){

next edit the install_gallery/global.php file, add the following code at line 1:


if (function_exists('mysql_set_charset') === false) {
mysql_set_charset($charset$link_identifier null)
         if (
$link_identifier == null) {
mysql_query('SET NAMES "'.$charset.'"');
         } else {
mysql_query('SET NAMES "'.$charset.'"'$link_identifier);

add the same code at line 1 of the install_gallery/scripts/connection.php file.

after the install is complete, you may need to edit the Connections/powergallery.php and add that code block again at line 1.
