Topic: mysql_connect() to be replaced with mysql, how?

Hi,

I just upgraded from 1.4 to 1.4.4 (run on a PHP 5.6). I still get the

Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead 

What do I need to change and how? I've googled and I've searched here, but nothing related to punk. Must be some lousy searcher I am. sO now this post. Pls help.

btw, what extension is used here that shows the nice buttons for bold, italic etc when posting?

Re: mysql_connect() to be replaced with mysql, how?

config.php:

$db_type = 'mysql';

-->

$db_type = 'mysqli';

$db_type = 'mysqli';
$db_host = 'mysqldomainname.com';
$db_name = 'mydbname';
$db_username = 'myuser';
$db_password = 'mypwd';
$db_prefix = 'bb_';
$p_connect = true;

$base_url = 'http://mydomain.com/forum';

$cookie_name = 'punbb_cookie';
$cookie_domain = '';
$cookie_path = '/';
$cookie_secure = 0;

Re: mysql_connect() to be replaced with mysql, how?

why the connection is true? I have forums like this:

$db_type = 'mysqli';
$db_host = 'localhost';

== //  ==

$p_connect = false;

Re: mysql_connect() to be replaced with mysql, how?

For mysql there is no difference between $p_connect = true and false.

Still the same connection warning regwrding mysql_connect() vs mysqli. And I also have a deprecation error in the posts, regarding the #e parameter

Re: mysql_connect() to be replaced with mysql, how?

In what file this error?
In the file mysqli.php such a function does not exist. Maybe this error comes from the extension?

It is necessary to update expansions which add new bb-codes for v 1.4.4.

Re: mysql_connect() to be replaced with mysql, how?

It happens during connection, so I guess it's the config.php, and that has been updated with dbtype = mysqli

Regarding "e#", all extensions are updated. I get the following message:

Warning: preg_replace_callback(): Modifier /e cannot be used with replacement callback in /home/hotsailsmauishop/hotsailsmaui.com/forum/include/parser.php on line 811

fancy video tag
private messages

Here are these two extensions may be a problem with the modifier. Disconnect see whether the problem has been resolved?

Re: mysql_connect() to be replaced with mysql, how?

It was the fancy videotag! Thanks!

Still haven't been able to get rid of the database connection error though.

Re: mysql_connect() to be replaced with mysql, how?

I see now it's possibly man old connection string from the original website that is messing up.

In what file is the db-connection functions for the forum?
