phpMyAdmin Debian Stretch Upgrade No MySQLi

I did an upgrade on my Desktop at home from Jesse to Stretch a while back, and in the move went from php5 to php7.1..

Well phpMyAdmin kept giving me an error saying that MySQLi was not installed or enabled.

Turns out MySQLi for php7.1 was install, but not php7.1.. Not really sure how it managed that in the upgrade.

Did a apt-get remove for php5

apt-get remove php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-cli php5-common php5-curl php5-gd php5-json php5-mcrypt php5-mysql

Then did a install of php7.1 (phpMyAdmin also complained it need mbstring)

apt-get install php7.1 php7.1-mbstring

Then restarted apache

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Trent’s First Computer

I setup an old Thinkpad T60 I had as a bench computer in the garage for Mr. T running doudoulinux.

He is actually picking it up very quick for a 2 1/2 year old (I think). His mouse control is suprising me more than anything. Tux Paint is the top pick for his time right now.

Trying to grow Asparagus

Im trying to grow Asparagus in the garden this year. It should come up every year after it gets going, but takes some work and a few years to get it self started.

You have to let it start growing, then dig it up and plant it much deeper. To grow down and survive the frost. 

Be interesting to see if I can actually get it to grow and take hold.
