Fatal Error when I change PHP version to 7.2.*

  • | 517 points


    Everything else works great but when I try to change my active PHP version 7.1.20 to versions 7.2.* I get "Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in..." type of error when I visit local sites and a white screen. Then I revert back to 7.1.* versions and everything loads fine.

    Is there a simple way to upgrade PHP without crashing WordPress installations?

    [Resolved] "The VC15 builds require to have the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017 x64 or x86 installed" - source: https://windows.php.net/download/

    I have installed the redistributables and now VC15 versions of PHP and Apache work without issues.
