I am receiving a JSON data error trying to do a backup.  This worked previously, so I assumed it is due to the version of PHP, now set to 5.5.  I reset it back to 5.4, and it works.  I tested it out on another site by resetting to defaults and then ensuring the only change was the PHP version, and the error is reproducible:

There was an error retrieving the JSON data from the server, try again or contact the developers!

Details: parsererror -- Invalid JSON:

Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /{path redacted}/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/classes/mysqlBackup.class.php on line 108

{"newDump":1,"tableName":"wp_bad_behavior","databaseName":"cogpe001_wordpress_24884","totalRecords":"1048","startAtLine":2,"startAtRecord":0,"dumpfile":"\/{path redacted}/administrator\/backups\/database-sql.sql","dbbackup_comp":"","dbbackup_drop":"1"}

JSON url: index2.php?task=recurse_database&nohtml=1&dbbackup_comp=&dbbackup_drop=1

We will be switching to mysqli in the near future, so until then, you might need to disable the deprecated error messages display.

I could do that or stick with the older version of PHP for now.  I see advantages and disadvantages of either.  Which would you recommend?

It depends on the disavantages you have with the new version of php, i would try and stick with that.

Well, I'm not sure why, but disabling deprecated errors still did not allow it to run, so I'm sticking to the older version of PHP for now.  Anyhow, just an update.
