Upgrade from MySQL to MySQLi

The MySQLi Shift upgrades code using the MySQL extension to use the MySQLi extension.


A PHP codebase.

Why upgrade from MySQL to MySQLi?

The MySQL extension was deprecated in PHP 5.5 and removed in PHP 7. Upgrading your code to use the MySQLi extension provides a familiar, improved API and keeps you compatible with the latest versions of PHP.
