I am getting the following error message appearing above the mini calendar.

Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /homepages/30/d69739664/htdocs/*mywebsite*/luxcal323-calendar/common/toolbox.php on line 232

Please advise what course of action I should take.


Wordpress 4.4.1
Megazine theme 1.09

I should add that I am on PHP 5.6

Hi Ritch,
This is a warning message from PHP, because since PHP 5.5 the usual MySQL extension is deprecated. You probably switched to a higher PHP version and that's why you now get this warning message.
We are working on a next LuxCal version based on the new PHP data objects (PDO) MySQL extension which will solve this problem.

For the time being I suggest to edit the file lcmini.php in the calendar root directory and replace line 61 by . . .

Many thanks, Roel.

That did the trick.
