Switching from MySQLi to standard MySQL

From Lime 49 Wiki

Sometimes the MySQLi PHP module causes problems which prevent iZeit from functioning normally. If you have access to php.ini on your server, you can disable the module and use the standard MySQL module instead.

To do this you'll need to find the location of php.ini and open it with a text editor.

Windows Servers

  1. On a windows server, search for MySQLi and you should find the following:
    extension=php_mysqli.dll
  2. Add a semicolon before the line to give:
    ;extension=php_mysqli.dll
  3. Now search for mysql, and remove the semicolon from the start of the line:
    ;extension=php_mysql.dll
    There may not be a semicolon infront of the line, in which case, proceed to the next step.
  4. Restart Apache/IIS
