php mysql_connect doesn't work for me. Can someone help?

Postby gleonard@bluewin.ch » 20. February 2019 11:03

I just installed xampp with php 7.3 / 7.2 and am test running it on my localhost. I can no longer connect to my database with the php 7.3. My code looks like this:
1 <?php
2 // ===============================================================
3 // customDBConnection.php
4 // ===============================================================
5 $db_server = 'localhost';
6 $db_name = 'crss';
7 $db_user = 'root';
8 $db_passwd = '';
9 // ------------------------------------------------
10 // Connect to DATABASE
11 // ------------------------------------------------
12 $db = mysql_connect($db_server, $db_user, $db_passwd);
13 mysql_select_db($db_name,$db);

The error that php throws is this:
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\xampp\htdocs\crss\customDBConnection.php:19 Stack trace: #0 C:\xampp\htdocs\crss\index.php(5): include() #1 {main} thrown in C:\xampp\htdocs\crss\customDBConnection.php on line 12

The above code has been running on my servers for years now without any problems.

Can someone of you help me?

Thank you.

Hi,

The official php Documentation tells you everything you need to know:
http://php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-connect.php

best wishes,

Thanks Altrea. I see now that I have to abandon mysql. I've decided to go with mysqli which means that I have a lot of work to do. Nonetheless, thank you again for your response.
