Hello,
Welcome to this website.
It seems you use an old php script, which uses the mysql_connect() function for working with mysql database.
That function is deprecated in the newer php versions (php 5.5+).
The solution is to use the MySQLi or PDO functions, which means to modify the code of that script to replace al the mysql_ instructions with MYSQLi or PDO.
- For more info, just search on the net for: " Deprecated: mysql_connect() ".

- On his site there are some lessons for beginners about MiSQLi and PDO, just see the PHP-MySQL Course
