Switching from PHP 5.6 to 7.3
« on: August 29, 2019, 02:43:18 pm »


I have two instances of CPG installed. Both the current version. In my admin back end of my hoster I switched both domains from PHP 5.6 to 7.3. One CPG is working just fine, the other one throws an error as long as I keep it on 7.3. On 5.6 it still works fine.

Code: [Select]
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class 'mysqli' not found in /home/www/doc/15877/ Stack trace: #0 /home/www/doc/15877/ CPG_Dbase->__construct(Array) #1 /home/www/doc/15877/ require('/home/www/doc/1...') #2 {main} thrown in /home/www/doc/15877/ on line 31
I bet this is something really simple but I can't wrap my head around it. Please help.

There must be some different PHP configuration changing files (php.ini .htaccess) in the path to the two galleries.

Put a small file in each gallery's root folder...

Code: [Select]
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Access the files from a browser. Look for differences that would keep one from providing the mysqli extension to PHP.
