Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: mysql_connect(); error

  1. #1

    mysql_connect(); error

    I recently upgraded to PHP5 and for some reason I am having issues with a website that uses the mysql_connect() command and it is giving me this error.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /home/httpd/vhosts/therealclays.com/httpdocs/dbinclude.php on line 2

    I am assuming they removed this function in PHP 5. What would I replace it with?

    Are you passing the correct variables to the function?

    $link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');

    use mysql_error for some quick and dirty debugging:
    PHP Code:
    $link mysql_connect('localhost''mysql_user''mysql_password');
    if( !
    $link ) {
    mysql_error() );

    I found out that is was a MySQL error from somewhere. I am not good as VI

    btw, force re-volvemedia.com backround to white otherwise it doesnt look like intended here.
