So any one have any idea what was wrong ? as this website was working from the past two year's and now only it was showing this erro and the page was blank

The common fix or reply about this with a google search seems to be "wrap your class in code to check for the function/class."

So the entire Class MysqlConnect is wrapped like this:

if (class_exists('MysqlConnect') != true) {

    class MysqlConnect { ... }

}

`

commented: its worked +0

Thank you rproffitt , it worked as I was searching for an resolution for this issue but

the forum's and website's are saying to add required or once_required but none of them

worked for me. As it worked I added the line like below so the website started working.

Thanks..

Thanks for the report back. Now there are some that will call this not a great fix but hey, sometimes you can't go over all the code and have to go with a wrap solution as I noted.

Your supplied code didn't find Waldo for me. Or rather I didn't see where you could have included this class more than one.
