how easy difficult to upgrade to mysqli from dreamweavers server behaviour and databridge update/create behaviour

Hi,
I am currently running on PHP5.3 and need to upgrade to 5.6 which mean mysqlli. My whole site is built using dreamweaver standard mysql connection and update/create is handled by databdrige. How easy is the upgrade process on the code itself. Do I have to manually update every aspect that uses the older code or is there an easier way?

Currently you would have to manually update every server behavior by applying the new one with the old. PHP 5.6 will still support mysql, so I'd suggest holding off on the update if you can and the migration should become easier when we get out the next DataBridge upgrade.

Dear Ray,

Thank you. I thought mysql was deprecated in PHP 5.5. Am I wrong:
http://php.net/manual/en/migration55.deprecated.php

Is it just the warning that it generated by PHP?

Deprecated, but not removed. That just means there is a warning that you can turn off saying it will eventually be removed.

Dear Ray,

Thanks, I really appreciate the help. Saved me a lot of worry and time. I look forward to the new DataBridge.

Dear Ray,
Can I ask one more question. I am using PEAR mail to send emails using SMTP through the webassist plugin. PEAR was a pain to install and maintain. Is this composer package the same as PEAR mail and can I use that instead?

https://packagist.org/packages/pear/mail

And if so does the "path to pear" become /vendor/ ?

Thanks again

It looks the same, but I've never used it. I really can't comment on what would or wouldn't work or what the settings would be with any confidence, but it appears to be a standard pear package.
