... on top of that I need to connect to a (remote) mysql database running with MySQL 3.23.45-log (that's out of my administration so that I cannot upgrade)
the problem that I have is that with (old) PHP 5.2.6 I don't have any problem in connecting to the remote database... both with mysql_connect() and mysqli_connect()
but with new installation PHP 5.4.7 the error given is "Connecting to 3.22, 3.23 & 4.0 is not supported. Server is 3.23.45-log"
Has support for very old MySQL engine been dismissed between PHP 5.2 and PHP 5.4
How can I solve the problem that I have?
Am I forced to downgrade PHP to 5.2 version on new machine to let it work (again) with MySQL 3.23?
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me!
