Use mysqli for MySQL queries when available
|Reported by:||scottconnerly||Owned by:|
the mysql_* functions are officially deprecated for PHP 5.4 and will begin throwing E_DEPRECATED errors in the next version of PHP.
Wordpress should use PDO by default, but fall back to mysql_* when PDO is not present.
