  • Apologises if this has been answered somewhere, but I am struggling to find any information about it!

    I am converting a lot of my applications from mysql to PDO to make sure I am fully secure against SQL injection. It made me wonder what state WordPress is in in terms of the code behind the scenes.

    It sounds like they still use mysql_ functions – is that correct?

    Surely that will need some attention for servers running PHP 5.5. Is there any word on this?

  • why would it need attention for 5.5?

    it is marked as deprecated as of 5.5, but it will still work.

    and will be removed in the future.

    So the code behind WP will have to change at some point no? I just thought maybe they’d be some sort of official recognition of this happening in the future even if it is a little way off.



    Makes sense to move to mysqli
