Longback I have installed PHP 5.3 on my Ubuntu and I started working on MySQL databases. Today I tried to access MySQL data using
To my vast surprise, php thrown an error at me. PHP 5.3.x doesn't have MyQL native drivers. So, I cannot use the above command. Now I have to use fetch_assoc() to access data or I have to upgrade to PHP 5.4.x. So I updated PHP to latest version.
If you want to update, you can use the following commands in your terminal.
apt-get update && apt-get install python-software-properties
Now try this
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
This will show about the version of php currently available on your localhost.
So, You have upgraded to PHP 5.4.x, You can use mysqli_result::fetch_all() directly!
