    Error after moving SS to another server/hosting Link to this post

    Hi, I am moving SS installation to another server/hosting.
    I imported the mysql dump into a new db, changed the server/user/db/password info in mysite/_config.php.
    Now, opening the site I get this error:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /home/MYHOME/MYSITENAME.com/docs/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php on line 41

    Using SS 2.2.2.
    Cant figure out what the problem is.
    A note: my hosting provider requires to use not 'localhost' but 'username.mysql' for a mysql server name.

    Any ideas?

    UPD: Solved. The problem was in php 5 default configuration (thanks to the hosting support).

    One thing you can do when moving hosts is to put a new install there first, and see if the install checker shows any problems. Once that install checker shows green, you can overwrite it with your existing site.

    That means you can be confident the correct versions of dependencies and so on, exist.
