Loganalyzer setup hang - step 5, blank page


Going through the process of setting up loganalyzer get to step 5 all I get is a blank web page. Using Firefox, tried IE with the same results. From the Apache error.log I get;

PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /usr/share/loganalyzer/install.php:374\nStack trace:\n#0 {main}\n thrown in /usr/share/loganalyzer/install.php on line 374, referer: http://server/loganalyzer/install.php?step=3

Step 4 confirms "the database connection has been successfully verified!" Interesting item about step 4, it to opens blank page but if I force a reload it will open with the step 4 page.

Verified login credentials, logged into mysql from CLI using the same credentials, have tried using root account and got the same error message in the Apache error.log


Line 374 from install.php;
$link_id = mysql_connect( $_SESSION['UserDBServer'], $_SESSION['UserDBUser'], $_SESSION['UserDBPass']);

Is this an issue with the install.php script?

MySQL server & Loganalyzer web host
Ubuntu 16.04
MySQL 5.7.17
LogAnalyzer 4.1.5
From this same server I have phpmyadmin working, no issues,it too access the same DB.

Using a CentOS 7 server as the Rsyslog collector, uses the same credentials to connect to the remote MySQL server without any issues. Installed Loganalyzer on this server, same result as Ubuntu box.

Looks like a problem with the php7 that's installed by default in ubuntu-16.04, because php7 has removed the support of myslq() functions in favor of mysqli() ones.

Are you sure you're running the latest LogAnalyzer 4.1.5(v4-stable)?
Because according to the release notes it's now using mysqli() instead of mysql(), so you shouldn't see the mysql_connect() error above.

I created a web page, info.php, with single line of phpinfo(); All I get is a blank white page.

I'm positive I am running version 4.1.5, based on my test above appears to be more than the LogAnalyzer having a problem.

Any thoughts or suggestions on how to proceed?

A blank page means that there is a php error.
Since you said in your OP that phpmyadmin works on that server, I guess that it should be some error you did. Your phpinfo page should look like this:
Code:
<?php
phpinfo();
?>

In this case check for php errors in apache error.log.
I guess you've already enabled php logging, as you post the loganalyzer error in your OP.
BTW does phpmyadmin still works? How about a more simple page:
Code:
<?php
echo 'Test';
?>

Ok, I'm visually challenged I guess. Copied then pasted in

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

Works.

Have a new project, as this is a pet project, have a server to setup and that will take up my time for the immediate future. Consider this closed but not solved. Thanks for all your help, really appreciate it.
