    I'm currently in the process of trying to install a script onto my server (which I have installed and setup) but whenever I try and setup this script, I get:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /var/www/status/config.php on line 31

    I edited my php.ini and uncommented "extension=mysql.so", then restarted Apache but it still doesn't work.

    I'm currently using Webmin to administrate my server. I heard somewehre about needing the line "--with-mysql" but I don't know what this means.

    My PHPInfo file: http://www.dannyg.co.uk/info.php

    Any help would be very very much appreciated,

    Thanks in advance,

    MySQL is not enabled in your PHP. Did you install the php-mysql pacakge from your linux distribution? Which php.ini did you edit?

    I did "apt-get install php5" and I installed MySQL via Webmin. The PHP works fine (hence the info.php page). Thats all I have installed as far as PHP and MySQL goes.

    I edited the file in "/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini"

    Yes, you are correct you could able to see the MySQL section in phpinfo page , you should have compatible php-mysql client also as suggest by other expert here.

    However, sometime I have faced this issues after upgrading mysql I suggest you Put this into your my.ini file under the [MYSQLD] section:


    and restart your mysql service and check.

    I have the same problem.

    I am getting these message:

    "Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mysql_connect() in /var/www/html/php/news/news/config.php on line 4"

    The server has webmin 1.500 installed.

    This is my phpinfo data:

    We have webmin 1.500 installed. I have created a MySQL database. But in the php files we get

    Call to undefined function: mysql_connect()

    You can see phpinfo in

    What can we do?

    Ensure that the php5-mysql package is installed if it s a php version < 7. PHP 7 and above dont have the classic mysql api anymore so all scripts that you want to use on php 7 must use either mysqli or pdo drivers.
