phpBB and php7 : mysql_connect deprecated

Post by roz99 » Thu Apr 07, 2016 11:09 am

Hi, I am using the latest version of phpBB (3.1.8). Unfortunately this version seems to be incompatible with php7, where mysql_connect is deprecated. Can we soon expect a version of phpBB that is fully compatible with php7? There are ISPs out there who begin charging an extended services of php5 on their servers!

phpBB 3.2 is currently is in beta, so it probably will be released rather soonish, and it will support PHP 7.

Also it's using mysql_connect because you're using the MySQL connection method in your installation instead of MySQLi.
