Subject: [PHP-DEV] RFC: ext/mysql deprecation
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.php.devel
Date: Monday 12th November 2012 13:00:18 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Hi everyone,

I've written an RFC to cover deprecating ext/mysql in PHP 5.5:
https://wiki.php.net/rfc/mysql_deprecation.
While we handled the soft
deprecation in the documentation purely via a straw poll on Internals,
I presume this will end up needing to go to a vote, hence the RFC.

I won't rehash the background overly (there's some more detail in the
RFC), other than to note that we've now had deprecation notices on all
mysql_* functions in the manual for about six months and that the
logical next step is to start generating E_DEPRECATED notices when
users connect via mysql_connect(), mysql_pconnect() or the implicit
ext/mysql connection routines. It's my belief that doing so will
hasten the move of users to the more modern (and supported) APIs
available: mysqli and PDO, and that this process will also likely
encourage some users to switch to safer patterns such as prepared
queries at the same time.

I must apologise for the lateness of this RFC: I had hoped to do this
some time before alpha 1, but travel and illness have taken their
toll. Better late than never!

So, please provide comments, feedback, concerns, and so on. Obviously,
this isn't going to a vote for at least a couple of weeks, but earlier
feedback is better.

Thanks,

Adam
