mySqli with Softaculous - how to help
« on: March 16, 2014, 07:03:12 PM »
After testing several ways,  the only way I see to get MySQLI is thru FTP upload and install, choose MySQLI on the Abantecart install routine.

There doesn't seem to be any way to choose MySQLI on a Softaculous install.  And I do not know how to call it after the install.  My preference would be to use the Softaculous installer as it is much faster than FTP upload and has a couple of nice additional features.  I am running all the correct versions to support MySQLI.

Any input into this would be great. 

Thanks
Lee

In the folder /core/database you can see two files: amysqli.php and mysql.php
I am not really sure, though, when the system picks one or the other. MySQL is soon being deprecated and it is not a good idea to keep working on it.
My two cents  :)

Exactly right cbarg...we need to get away from SQL...but as Lee pointed out, using the cPanel installer, there is NO option to use mySQLi

Softaculous needs to get with the program

Maybe we need to tell Softaculous about this?

probably your host does not support mysqli.. you should ask hosting provider about it.

Here is the thread on their forum...

Basically finger pointing....here is the text of the reply.

At the moment we use the default choice by AbanteCart i.e. MySQL. We will try to add the option to choose the database type as well.


According to them, it's AbanteCart's default install setup with Softaculous...they will look into adding that option soon.
