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 Finally, found that php5 itself was not installed. Went to Ubuntu software center. Installed php5, and Bingo!, mysql worked.
