db connection issue
I've been trying to put a site live on a clients server for a few days now. Perch isn't connecting to the database despite all the database information (username, password, db name) being correct. I get the Database connection error page "Perch could not connect to the database".
I've been back and forth with their hosting support and they are saying that because Perch is connecting to the database using php5.2 and they use php5.5 this is what the issue might be. "The database access method you are using in PHP 5.2 might not be available in php 5.5. Newer PHP versions have deprecated some older access methods."
I've never had a problem before putting perch on any other servers. Is what they're saying correct if so how would I fix it? If it's not correct I can go back to them as it must be an issue on their side.
