This version fails when you edit a layout on modulebuilder (

[Wed Oct 04 18:43:52.897488 2017] [php7:error] [pid 26322] [client XX.XX.XX.XX:XXXXX] PHP Fatal error: Declaration of UndeployedMetaDataImplementation::getFileName($view, $moduleName, $packageName, $type = MB_BASEMETADATALOCATION) must be compatible with AbstractMetaDataImplementation::getFileName($view, $moduleName, $type = MB_CUSTOMMETADATALOCATION) in /var/www/html/suite_7_9_6/modules/ModuleBuilder/parsers/views/UndeployedMetaDataImplementation.php on line 49, referer: http://XXXXXXXXXX/suite_7_9_6/index.php?module=ModuleBuilder&action=index&type=mb

PHP Version:
PHP 7.1.9 (cli) (built: Sep 11 2017 16:59:42) ( NTS )

I’m getting errors during the upgrade to 7.9.6 from 7.9.4. Those errors interrupt the upgrade cycle and I get logged out.
After investigating the php error log, I could see that there is a wrong call to mysqli_real_escape_string instead of mysql_real_escape_string in include\database\MysqlManager.phpMysqlManager.php line 463.

Please advise.
Best Regards
