I am using Security Assist to ensure users Agree to the Terms & Conditions of a web site before proceeding. The code utilises MySQL and the page now has the error message "Deprecated: mysql_pconnect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed

I can send you the link to the web page but would prefer to do that privately

You can update your php.ini file to change debugging settings to not display deprecated messages. That is just a warning and won't effect the functionality of the page, so the best option is to just turn it off.

Hi Ray

I added the following to the PHP.ini

error_reporting(0);

However, I am still getting the same error message

This is part of the code in my php file and perhaps the part at the end overwrites the php.ini file?

The correct syntax for the php.ini file is:

error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED

Find the existing error_reporting line and change it there, don't just add a line.

The hosting is with go daddy. I spoke with tem and there isn't an existing PHP file, they said. So I created one with the appropriate line in. I am guessing that's wrong?

It is going to ignore the file if you just add one at a random place.

Just contact godaddy support and ask them how to turn off deprecated error messages. They should have a solution.

Is there a way of changing the connection so that it resolves it permanently. I imagine that at some stage soon they will turn off support for mysql connections and the site will no longer work, regardless of the deprecated message being turned off.

If there is a link to how to update the connection string, that would be great

Thanks

They will not "turn off" mysql. It won't be supported in php 7, which they won't force you to upgrade to.

You would have to redevelop the pages to use MySQLi. It is not a simple update of just the connection. All of the code on the pages that interact with the database would have to be updated as well.
