Solved "PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect()"

Took me a while to understand what the issues was.

Installed LAMP on Ubuntu 12.04 through

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

After all was done, I tried running an application which was making mysql connection. The following was reported

PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function mysql_connect()

Checked phpinfo() output to find that mysql was not there.

Checked /etc/php/apache2/php.ini

Mysql extension was not being loaded. Added line, to no avail
extension=php_mysql.so

Finally, found that php5 itself was not installed.

Went to Ubuntu software center. Installed php5, and Bingo!, mysql worked.
