Support » Fixing WordPress » Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension

  • So, I have an old website based on PHP 5.3 and some old MySQL version. So we moved our site to new server with PHP 7.X (I think 7.0) and new MySQL.

    Problem is, client wants have old version on subdomain – [ redundant link removed ]. The script says, it’s missing MySQL in PHP installations, which is not true, cause on main domain is WordPress fully alive.

    In my view, I need something, that will translate old connection to new one, but I have on idea, what to try. I try rename mysql to mysqli, but that did not work. Any help?

  • I think, the simplest way to accomplish this is to move the subdomain to a different box with the old version of PHP / MySQL
