Upgrade MySQL to MySQLi

Hi Ray,

I am ready to work on the changes from MySQL to MySQLi. Before I use the new Data Bridge v2, I wanted to check back with you to see what the best way is to approach that.

I originally used Data Bridge to create the pages but have done a lot of design and code changes since then. I am not sure how exactly the process of migrating MySQL to MySQLi works using Data Bridge v2 but like to avoid that I somehow lose all my changes and ultimately end up having a site that works on PHP 7+ but defaults back to a basic design or something.

So can I use Data Bridge v2 to migrate without loosing the look and feel of my site and, maybe, later have you help to tweak the code or is it better to do a paid support ticket in the first place.

If you could have a look at my website at and let me know whether using Data Bridge v2 should work, that would be great.

Thanks so much!
