Call to undefined function mysql_connect()


Recommended Posts

You've likely not included the MySQL extension in your php.ini file.


That said, get away from mysql and use mysqli or PDO. The mysql extension will be removed in the next PHP release.

You PHP supported mysqli and PDO mysql, but not mysql() itself. That means your php is set up looking forward, rather than using old outdated mysql() stuff.


mysql_* is deprecated as of 5.3.x (I think) and you shouldnt use it. Instead either use mysqli or PDO mysql, which is exactly the same query but the PHP around that query is different (they are both OOP). If you have any questions regarding mysqli() or PDO mysql, we are here to help obviously.
