MySQL issue with php5.6 sites

This was working under CentOS, and Debian, but i had issues with both of them, so I switched to Ubuntu 20,
Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQLDatabase Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

These commands run fine, it sees php5.6

virtualmin check-config
virtualmin fix-domain-permissions --all-domains
virtualmin validate-domains --all-domains --feature web

I have no choice to be use php5.6, those are old CMS's no one wants to upgrade.

Thanks, Jeff

Perhaps, database credentials are incorrectly setup for an app? Try checking, if you can connect to MySQL database using console, with expected username and password, like:

mysql -u username -p

Besides, check if php5.6-mysql package is installed.

It looks like you're using Virtualmin GPL there though, and the area here is for folks using Virtualmin Pro. Since you're using Virtualmin GPL there, to troubleshoot that issue, what we'd suggest is to post your issue in our Community Forums to get support on that.

This is pro license, php5.6-mysql is installed.

I will look into permissions.

This is the commands I used to install it:

add-apt-repository -y ppa:ondrej/php
apt-get update
apt-get install php5.6 php5.6-mysql php5.6-cgi php5.6-cli php5.6-bz2 php5.6-cgi php5.6-curl php5.6-fpm php5.6-gd php5.6-imap php5.6-json php5.6-mbstring php5.6-mysql php5.6-odbc php5.6-pspell php5.6-soap php5.6-sqlite3 php5.6-xml php5.6-xmlrpc php5.6-zip php5.6-cgi php5.6-snmp php5.6-xsl php5.6-opcache php5.6-intl php5.6-curl

The server returns 500 error. Check Apache error log for the virtual server and test db connectivity using console first.

We are going to restore Debian, I think our backups are failing.

What is the deal with Debian using Ubuntu Repository that has a newer libc6?

I will have to deal with that, which is what caused this issue to begin with.

Thanks, Jeff

I realized I was using the wrong extension, last backup was bz, this time it was gz, but now I face a different issue, when I restored it, I got the error

failed : Starting php7.3-fpm (via systemctl): php7.3-fpm.serviceJob for php7.3-fpm.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status php7.3-fpm.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Trying to update php to 7.4 I get this error

Failed to save PHP versions : Apache virtual host was not found

I have all my domains working for php7.4, but I have 3 domains that run php5.6 that will work with MySQL for some reason, with this error

Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQLDatabase Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

These are php5.6 sites, Joomla and Drupal, and this worked under Debian 10, this is Ubuntu 20, but for some reason I cannot change the PHP versoin of any php5.6 site, I only have 3 of them, two Joomla, and one Drupal, but I really want to get these up.

Thanks Jeff

This was on hold due to 6.14 release, because my php5.6 sites would not change PHP version, that works, so I can now change them php5.6, but I still get the same MySQL Error, and I can ssh in and log into MySQL using the same credentials, so I think PHP is not running at all, since changing it to php7 will only give me a blank screen, and this message is just a default error message from 5.6 days, but it is clear it cannot connect to php-mysql.

This license is under user rremelin

Thanks, Jeff

You need to make sure that PHP 5.6 has mysql extensions and other essentials installed and loaded :

apt-get install php5.6-{cli,pdo,fpm,zip,gd,xml,mysql,cgi}

Create a small phpinfo.php file in document root to get more information about what is going on.

echo phpinfo();

Everything was already installed.

.. then you would need :

  1. Check Apache error logs
  2. If needed enable error displaying on PHP app to get clearer picture of what's failing

I would start from changing virtual server to use PHP version 7.3.

These sites are php5.6 only, and will not be getting upgraded, this one is Joomla, my php7 sites work fine.

This is my only error.

[Wed Nov 25 00:46:21.574410 2020] [proxy_fcgi:error] [pid 282122] [client] AH01071: Got error 'PHP message: PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function set_magic_quotes_runtime() in /home/charliephillips/public_html/administrator/includes/framework.php:21\nStack trace:\n#0 /home/charliephillips/public_html/administrator/index.php(22): require_once()\n#1 {main}\n  thrown in /home/charliephillips/public_html/administrator/includes/framework.php on line 21'

set_magic_quotes_runtime does not exist in php7, but should in php5.6, and this is 5.6, deprecated in 5.3, phpinfo proved that.

I added with no help.

if (!function_exists('set_magic_quotes_runtime')) {
    function set_magic_quotes_runtime($new_setting) {
        return true;

I commented out the line did not help.

Thanks, Jeff

Jeff, I will be be able to help you rewrite your PHP app.

As set_magic_quotes_runtime() function was removed in PHP 7, you should use PHP 5.6 for this virtual server or for this particular directory.

I commented out that line since it is setting it off anyways, and off is the default, I do not get this error now, but MySQL still does not work, so there are no current errors in the error log, and I think I got this error switching to php7, to begin with, it is the only error in the log.

I have an old Joomla and Drupal site that needs 5.6, I cannot upgrade them due to other parts written for php5.6, these are historical sites only, nothing new is added to them, so this is affecting both Joomla and Drupal, both older versions that only run under php5.6, installed using the script installer.

If I switch to php7 I get a blank screen.

Thanks, Jeff

but MySQL still does not work

Have you imported the database? Is the database credentials on the PHP app (database name, username, password and etc are set correctly?

Can you connect to the database using console and query something?

If you create a simple PHP file, and try to connect and then run a simple select MySQL query on some table in a database, how does it behave? (remember, you would need to enable error printing, either in PHP config or in the script itself.

For the script try to go with:

ini_set('display_errors', 1);
ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1);

PHP global config can be controlled from PHP configuration page under given virtual server.

I made the changes to php configuration global for php5.6, I am sure this does the same thing, but I am not seeing any new errors.

error_reporting = E_ALL
display_errors = On
display_startup_errors = On

I can ssh into MySQL and using the same credentials as VM log in, and I can see the databases are there, I have tried to restore the backups since the 6.14 release, I can now change the PHP version.

This is only php5.6 sites, all my php7 sites work fine.

Thanks, Jeff

Now, you should be able to see warnings and errors?

If you don't, perhaps you need to change something on the app itself.

Under PHP-FPM-Configuration -> Error Logging.

Now I see a bunch of stuff, but nothing that is causing this issue.

I attached the errors.

Thanks, Jeff

Today Charlie Philips Domain died, so it died with him, I think rremelin did not renew it since Charlie did not like the Alpha version, no reason to keep the site up, now I have a different Joomla site to deal with, and this time I noticed that Mail still works, it does not use MySQL, so this seems to prove that php5.6 MySQL is not working, and I did try to uninstall and reinstall them, this is David Hinson's web site, he is in prison for political reasons, I want it up because I knew him, and hosted the site before he was arrested, like most sites that put out the message our Constitution in the U.S. is gone, and this is all Treason, is a message I put out, and all my sites do as well, so we are always getting pounded on, I am Retired Military, and they know this is the truth, the Law even proves the US is a Franchise, but this is not a Politial Issue, it is a php5.6 and MySql issue, and should be much easier to fix then the issues the sites deal with, taking an Oath to Defend and Protect the Constition always comes at a cost, allowing anyone buy Congress to Print Money is Tresason, ask JFK, but I do not need political advice, I need the web sites back up, if this cannot be done, just level with me as to why, can you get Joomla 1.5 to work under php5.6 or not, you should be able to reproduce this, just install it, and test it, not much to ask, I tried it on CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu, just duplicate it, that is all I ask, you are looking at this like it is my issue, when Joomla 1.5 was a support script, and not your fault it is not now, but we need to put this to bed if you cannot reproduce this error, I have multiple Joomla sites with the same issue as the old Drupal sites with the same issue, this is Php5.6 and MySQL issue, and after moving from one server to the next chasing this issue, you can understand why I sound upset, not at you guys, I understand this bug has nothing to do with VM, I get it, I have cancer and get cranky, and do not mean to be mean, I would not have these site is not for Virtual Min, it is worth the LIcense fee, and we will continue as loyal customers with you, as long as we live, but I need you to reproduce this, so we can both know this is not my issue with this server, and is in fact, a bug in the php5.6 MySQL, and has been reproduced, otherwise, this server has a serious issue, and I need to fix it, even if I delete all the php5.6 sites, which me and rremelin, the one this licenses is under, are about to give up on php5.6, but want to know if this is something you can reprocude, just install Joomla 1.5 and I upgraded my only Drupal site, so I do not care about it, but it does have the same issue, but I could not have it down, so I was force to switch to WordPress, who is going to release a security risk today, so much fun having cancer and dealing with all this at the same time.


Only two sites now that Charlie is dead.

Thanks, Jeff

Let's close all php5.6 issues, we are done with it, and so is everyone else.

Is this the right way to remove it on Ubuntu 20?

apt-get remove php56-php-{cli,pdo,fpm,zip,gd,xml,mysqlnd}
apt-get purge php5.6\*
apt autoremove

I talked to rremelin, we are going to let it go, and not update the sites, but start new with WordPress.

The server is much more stable without it.

Thanks, Jeff
