The mysql extension is dead, long live PDO
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I had a person come into MediaWiki-General and say they got this warning:

Deprecated: mysql_query(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /var/www/mediawiki-1.22.7/extensions/mat_ext/exportcsv.php on line 35

Turns out, the mysql extension for php is in fact being deprecated.

It may be time to determine whether we want to use PDO or mysqli instead, or if we want to support both, or what.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

If I interpret bug 45288 correctly, MySQLi is favored?


Where can somebody find that in Git?!
At least the MW 1.22.9 tarball has no "mat_ext" under "/extensions".

Duplicate of T120333?

Looks so. (Action in core is most we can do, realistically?)
