Error Connecting to the DB.
« on: September 06, 2017, 01:58:18 AM »
I just now notice this today. I was working fine a while back now I got this error trying to connect to the DB.

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /home1/xxxxx/public_html/support/Sources/Subs-Db-mysql.php:58 Stack trace: #0 /home1/xxxxx/public_html/support/Sources/Load.php(2550): smf_db_initiate('localhost', 'hkeaton_xxxxx...', 'hkeaton_xxxxx', 'xxxxxxx', 'smf_', Array) #1 /home1/xxxxx/public_html/support/index.php(69): loadDatabase() #2 {main} thrown in /home1/xxxxxx/public_html/support/Sources/Subs-Db-mysql.php on line 58

How can I get this fixed?

I can't remember what version it is. But it won't tell me due to the error.

And what PHP version are you using? Can you try to upgrade it to PHP 5.4 at least?

Then you're not using SMF 2.0.14 (the only one compatible with PHP7), try to downgrade to another PHP version and then upgrade SMF to 2.0.14

either do that or downgrade your php version.

Yes, but you should downgrade first since you don't have access yet to your forum. After upgrading to 2.0.14, you can have PHP 7 back.
