Global ext/mysql changes

The following is a list of changes to the entire ext/mysql extension.


This extension was removed from PHP. For details, see Section 2.3, “Choosing an API”.


This extension has been deprecated. Connecting to a MySQL database via mysql_connect, mysql_pconnect or an implicit connection via any other mysql_* function will generate an E_DEPRECATED error.

mysql(), mysql_fieldname(), mysql_fieldtable(), mysql_fieldlen(), mysql_fieldtype(), mysql_fieldflags(), mysql_selectdb(), mysql_createdb(), mysql_dropdb(), mysql_freeresult(), mysql_numfields(), mysql_numrows(), mysql_listdbs(), mysql_listtables(), mysql_listfields(), mysql_db_name(), mysql_dbname(), mysql_tablename(), and mysql_table_name().
