The errors you're seeing in your Apache error log are due to a problem with FastCGI on your server. You will need to contact your web host and report this issue to them.

The errors listed in wp-content/debug.log are just informational messages which state that the mysql extension in use on your site is deprecated. You should ask your host if you can switch to mysqli which is the modern alternative.

I'll close this ticket off as neither of these are core WordPress issues, rather they're sever configuration errors. If you need any more help, you can try posting on the WordPress support forums.

Sorry but I am the web hosting cloud infrastructure.

I have more web sites in the same host and only with WordPress we have this random Issues. We use mysqlnd and mysqlnd_ms ("nd" is php Native Driver... deprecated?) thats not deprecated is the native driver for mysql of php 5.5 and supports mysql, mysqli and pdo_mysql drivers.

The funtions used in wordpress code are deprecated, the errorrs are caused for wordpress not for my PHP 5.5 and mysql driver....

The fast-cgi is correct. We have more than 100 web sites with thousands users running and all run ok, only wordpress fail, why?

In 36434:

Database: Allow loading when only the mysqlnd extension is loaded.

We do an early check for a mysql extension being loaded, but it fails if the mysqlnd extension is the only one present.

Props nexurium.

Fixes #33261.
