Thanks Tom

I'll pass that on.

I guess it could become a recurring problem at some point.

I created an issue for this already. The situtaion is as follows:

- Xerte uses the php mysql module, which is deprecated from php 5.5
- There is (already a long time) a new MySQLi (mysql improved) module which we don't use
- There is PDO.

No idea how we are going to move forward (MySQLi of PDO) in Xerte, but your collegue needs to make sure to have mysql support in php for the time being.

Hi all

I just received one or two emails from a colleague trying to install Xerte on a Windows server and getting a message during setup that 'Your PHP does not seem to have MySQL support' however phpinfo does show that MySQLi is enabled.


Do I recall previous discussion that the current Xerte codebase isn't likely to work with later versions of PHP because of MySQL integration changes? This server is PHP 5.5.4. If so has anyone been working on that for 2.1?
