I'm migrating my system from 14.04. to 18.04. and was happy to see that there was a letodms package in the repository that was smoothly integrated by apt adding all necessities like the apache, php7, mysql package etc.
However, configuring letodms was not as easy as I remembered it from 2 years ago, and there seems to be little to no documentation on the net nowadays.
When pointing a browser to http://localhost/letodms (/var/www/html/letodms) there is no installation routine in php as there used to be, simply an empty page is displayed.
The apache reports an error in it's logs, saying that mysql_connect is an undefined function.
Evidently mysql_connect is depreciated since php5 and I have tried several workarounds I found on the net, but none worked.
I expected, since the package is in the repository, that someone had it working, and am wondering if I "forgot to put gas i the tank" in the sense of not seeing a mistake I am making that is so basic that I don't think of it.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
