Wampserver & Webassist problems

What is the status of the new version DataAssist?

Wampserver has reduced its available downloads. It is now only available with PHP : 5.5.12. So I am now plagued with the error...

"Deprecated: mysql_pconnect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in ..."

When previewing any pages with DataAssist database connection.

edit the php.ini file to turn off depricated warnings:


error_reporting = E_ALL & ^E_DEPRECATED

Thanks Jason,

I would still appreciate a status update on the new DataAssist, will it be available in a month or two, next year?

At this point we are working an a MySQLi extension. After that is complete, the plan is to start work on Data Bridge.

I do not have a time frame or any other details though.

Jason,

As I understand your suggestion above, I changed (in the Wampserver PHP.ini)

error_reporting = E_ALL
to
error_reporting = E_ALL & ^E_DEPRECATED

my problem went from an error message at the top of the page, to a Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_pconnect() in...
In an otherwise blank page

make sure that the mysql library is enabled in the php.ini settings.

Yes it is.

Is...
error_reporting = E_ALL & ^E_DEPRECATED
the setting I should use?

If I change it to...
error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED
with a tilde instead of a caret, the page appears correctly (I believe).

Ok, then use that syntax.
