Currently using 1.5.2. Opencart and receiving the following fatal error when trying to access our homepage and admin. Thoughts of what might be causing this?

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /home1/xxxxxx/public_html/system/database/mysql.php:6 Stack trace: #0 /home1/xxxxxxx/public_html/system/library/db.php(12): MySQL->__construct('localhost', 'xxxxxx_admin', 'xxxxxxxx', 'xxxxxxx_xxxxxx...') #1 /home1/xxxxxx/public_html/index.php(38): DB->__construct('mysql', 'localhost', 'xxxxxx_admin', 'xxxxxxx', 'xxxxxxx_xxxxxxx...') #2 {main} thrown in /home1/xxxxxxx/public_html/system/database/mysql.php on line 6

Not a bug. OC v1.5x are pretty old as mysql with PHP is deprecated. mysqli must be used instead and since many years.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Is this an easy fix? Ideally we want to get the existing site back up and running as soon as we can and then consider upgrade options from there.

At this point, I'd say to consider upgrade as a custom job would be more ideal in order to be more up-to-date with Industry compliance. You could, either, create a new service request in the Commercial Support section of the forum, or contact an Opencart partner by using the Resources link at the top menu of the site, or contact me directly via PM to get this done.
