Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_pconnect() ....

Hi Ray

Have a site that, up until a couple of days ago, was working absolutely fine.

Now all the pages are blank. When I turn on error reporting I get

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_pconnect() in /home/sewarrbt/public_html/Connections/PowerCMSConnection.php on line 25



I have checked the connections files, the database conenction details (am able to successfully connect to it using heidi sql)

Done some searching on the forum and cant find anything that specifically references this...

Not sure what I need to do to rectify this?

Cheers

Jamie

Yes, it means the mysql module isn't enabled in the php.ini file.

Hi, I am experiencing the same thing and this is my error code: Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_pconnect() in /big/dom/MyDomain/www/Connections/localhost.php on line 9.

I'm not understanding "the mysql module isn't enabled in the php.ini file" very well, does this mean adding some lines or fixing some lines on php.ini would fix the issue? Not the connection file's issue then?

You may be running php7, which doesn't support standard MySQL connections. You would have to use MySQLi or downgrade your php version to 6 or lower.

Hi Ray, thank you for your reply.

I checked PHP versions and they are:
Mamp: 5.5.26
Terminal: 5.5.38
Browser: 5.6.29

None of them says that I use php7...

Still tho, I could start using MySQLi, what would be the fastest solution? Can I use MySQLi Server Behaviors on top of my shopping site with mysql?

You could just need to enable mysql in your php.ini file if you are using a version previous to php7.

You can use the MySQLi server behaviors. You would just have to create a MySQLi connection and then start using those server behaviors on your pages. DataBridge v2 includes functionality to update existing MySQL pages to MySQLi as well.
