I am currently trying to set up a backup plugin in WordPress. I am currently trying to set up UpdraftPlus.
When I run a backup (only on the files and not the database itself) it stops with the error:
PHP Fatal error (Error) has occurred. Error Message: Call to undefined function mysql_ping() (Code: 0, line 1625 in ...\wp-includes\wp-db.php)
I am using the Nami-Version 1.9.7, PHP 7.2 and a local MS SQL Server 2017.

Does someone know a solution for this problem or is there a better backup plugin for WordPress on a MS SQL Server?
