    Upgrading to PHP 7.1.6 – mysql_connect error, by freespirit00

    I just upgraded from PHP 5.6.1 to 7.1.6 and now I’m getting an error on my site (version 4.7.5): Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in wp-includes\wp-db.php:1570

    I’m getting this error in a staging environment, but not development environment and there shouldn’t be a difference between the two other than content.

    Research says I need to enable the mysqli extension in php.ini, but that is already enabled. What else can I try?
