Question about (!) Deprecated
After reinstalling wamp I am now seeing the following warning at the top of my security pages:
Deprecated: mysql_pconnect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in C:\wamp\www\testsite\Connections\impressions_db.php on line 9
Upon trying to solve this I found this page: http://us1.php.net/function.mysql-pconnect
Scrolling down upon this: Note: You can suppress the error message on failure by prepending a @ to the function name.
So I prepended on line 4 and it repressed the deprecated message on the testing server.
Will this affect the functionality on the live server?
Thank you for your time.
