The possible new database layer for WordPress core
Big thanks for this awesome plugin, stumbles upon it in trac discussion and it was just what I needed.
Updated my Kubuntu today and with it came PHP 5.5, which of course throws deprecation error about mysql_. I did not want to mess with the downgrade so I looked for a plugin solution instead, and voila, here it is :)
Once again, thanks
I had set up a brand new server with no idea at the time that PHP 5.5.x wasn't really supported in WordPress 3.6.x. This plugin not only works great on multiple sites where I use it, including older sites that I migrated to this new server, but it's pretty straight forward and simple to set up.
Big kudos to the author for making this functionality available in a non-patch format after the patch failed to make it into WP 3.6. Having this as a plugin is very valuable because it avoids having to make changes to the WP core that could break when WP itself gets updated.
The only reason I'm not rating this 5/5 stars is because I had to get the version of the plugin from the author's GitHub site since plugin version 1.3 throws a lot of errors with WP 3.6-RC2. However, the version from the author's GitHub site works perfectly.
Edit: 5 stars for version 1.4 of the plugin.
WordPress 3.6-beta4-24523, IIS7, PHP 5.4.16, PDO + mysgli + mysql, mysql 5.5.27, WP_DEBUG:
No errors logged or visible on a small, single test site with few plugins.
Thank you for making this plugin. I really look forward to be running the latest PHP without deprecation warnings.
Will continue testing this plugin on LAMP, multisite, PHP 5.5, without PDO and/or mysqli, lots of common plugins and with a lot of posts and traffic.
If I find issues I will report on the support forum here.
Update, version 1.3: This is now excellent!
