With the installation of PHP 5.5, the MySQL PHP “connect” code is no longer supported. It seems to be causing me some problems; I’m trying to import a lot of data from some other software so I can start using SuiteCRM. While troubleshooting, the first correlation I found was the warning about the database connect code was causing a warning.
The “bad” solution is to ignore “deprecated” warnings, and the authors of mysqli and PDO both say that their solutions are better than the other. Does the community have a path forward (PDO? mysqli? roll-our-own?) or are we just going to let the software stop working as more and more people upgrade to PHP 5.5?
