mySQLi module not installed error after upgrading to PHP 7.1

mySQLi module not installed error after upgrading to PHP 7.1

apparently others are having this same problem. I upgraded my hosting to a new VPS supporting multiple versions of PHP, and as long as I'm using 5.6, my mySQLi functions work fine. As soon as I switch to 7.1, my DW functions fail with the well-known error: "Your PHP server doesn't have the MySQL or MySQLi module loaded or you can't use the mysql_(p)connect functions."

Have you found a solution to this yet? I modified the .js file someone else did, but that didn't help. Other thoughts? My Skype username is 'lionsmane'
