    It does work w/ PHP 7, but you need themysqli extension. The mysql package doesn't exist in PHP 7.x

    There was in fact an issue with the version 2.4 of the Porter. A new version has been uploaded today. Please let us know if you run into any other issue while using this version.

    The PDO extension is used by default. This can be changed by modifying the value of the DB_EXTENSION constant in the vanilla2export.php file, like in the example below.

    define('DB_EXTENSION', 'mysqli');

    Sorry for any inconveniences this issue might have caused.
