...is currently unable to handle this request

Hi there guys, long time no see. I have some problems. Sometimes I really get annoyed because it seems mysql is crashing ? I don’t know if this is the issue here but in error.log i get this: "PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_escape_string() in

I really don’t know the issue. It’s not from a plugin nor a theme. I tried even with the WordPress default theme.

I have Ubuntu on a $20 DO droplet with --wpredis --letsencrypt --php7 latest EE version. root@alex:/var/www/blajan.org/logs# lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS Release: 16.04 Codename: xenial root@alex:/var/www/blajan.org/logs#

Where is this error occurring? You stripped an important part of the error message, thus we can’t be of much help.

I’ve seen this happening before in plugins poorly written. I can’t say if this is your case.

[EDIT] Plugins poorly written that are not ready for recent versions of PHP, relying on deprecated functions.
