So as the title already says, my host is migrating from php 5.6 to 7.1. Which for me, as I'm running a shop on 1.5.6.4 creates problems, eventhough I'm using the basic theme and am really only using the admin side of the shop. Which for us (adding wholesale orders) is essential!

I read some other threads as well, and as far as I understood the main issue is that php 5.6 is using msql and this will no longer be supported, so my shop has to be updated to using mysqli.

I found some patches for it too, but not sure what they do exactly (as there is no readme file) but they claim to easy fix the issues. Patches

Anybody here who can help me with some additional information?

Thanks!!

Well, MySqli is already built into OC v.1.5.6.4, but you need a new encryption.php File,
to make PHP-7 work with v.1.5.6.4.

Hmm, if only :)

Uploaded the new encryption file, but when swithched to php 7.1 it gives a blank screen (I did have cpanel repair the database). But there is no error in the log or anything.

However, without the new encryption file the log shows:

[11-Dec-2018 13:03:33 Europe/Berlin] PHP Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /public_html/retail/system/database/mysql.php on line 6

Any clues?

Well, you did not yet switch the Database configuration
in your both config.php files to:
define('DB_DRIVER', 'mysqli');

Well, unfortunately, I don't drink Beer, nor other alcoholic Beverages,
for the past 40 Years already, your therefore have to settle with a Coke,
or a Glass of Milk.
Good Luck! Image

PS. I now have to add Smilies by Image-link, since someone obviously
played around with unknown Code again, for what reason ever ...
