Converting from MySql - questions

Ray, thank you ! for your help last week. I am trying to follow the tutorial on making conversions from mysql to mysqli but when I click on a recordset, I cannot get the WA recordset panel to open as in the tutorial page: I can see the recordsets already created in the WA Database panel and I can see the recordsets in the Bindings Panel in DW, but I can't open the WA version f the RS panel. When I go to the WA dropsdown menu it only offers the i version of recordsets but when I click on that, it creates a new one. IOW, I'mhaving trouble converting the old sets to new ones according to the instructions. Also I have clicked in the code where the queries/rs are but it still doesn't bring up the WA recordset panel to change from regular to i.

Also, I am still not sure what Earthliink is doing but it has temporarily reverted the site back to php 5.x from 7. Does MySqli work with php5? Although I can make the connection to the DB, do all the other recordset features work with legacy php?

Forgive me if these are DOH questions, but I have not worked with php for a couple of years. I have been mostly developing WordPress sites or simple html sites that don't require php programming and I am very rusty.
