I am working with Laravel 5.3 which required PHP 5.6.4. In my server there is only option for 5.6.3 or 7.0
When I select 5.6.3 using Multi PHP Manager in cpanel for the domain, mysql connection works and returns value when i wrote simple code for testing connection:
<?php $conn = mysqli_connect('localhost','amplesho_admin', '1#Ampleadmin', 'amplesho_ampleshop1') or die('Database Error'); if($conn) echo "success"; else echo "failed";
While selecting 5.6.3 it returns success. But when i select 7.0, it returns nothing. I'm on a shared hosting.
based on your operating system , i assume you did not enable your mysqli module in your php 7.
to fix that , go to your php configuration directory , find php.ini , uncomment the module line , restart your server.
you might run a quick test by writing a php file contains phpinfo(); in it , check if mysqli or other mysql works , pdo or something.
if you did not install your php properly , please add some module . on mac or unix , it is easy , but on windows , really tricky.....
