Installation error mysql_connect()

I am getting a 500 error on the installation because the script calls mysql_connect () in lib/pkp/lib/adodb/drivers/

mysql_connect() is an outdated function not working with latest php7 version.

I am using the latest OJS 3.1.2-4 Version…

What is wrong here?

Hi @eji-admin,

What PHP version you are using? If 7+ try to change MySQL database driver to MySQLi in your installation form.

Use mysqli command. Mariadb
