Webuzo System Application Updated

We have updated PHP 5.5, 5.6 and 7.0 with MySQLnd and have removed MySQL Client Library.

MySQL Native Driver is a replacement for the MySQL Client Library (libmysqlclient). MySQL Native Driver is part of the official PHP sources as of PHP 5.3.0. With MySQL Native Driver there is now an alternative, as the MySQL database extensions can be compiled to use MySQL Native Driver instead of the MySQL Client Library. MySQL Native Driver is written in C as a PHP extension.

We highly recommend that all users update their respective PHP version to this release.

PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML.
