I have installed PHP 7 and MySQL 5.5.47 on Ubuntu 14.04.

I have checked installed extension using:

sudo apt-cache search php7-*

It outputs:

Hello @kartik,

The problem is that the package that used to connect PHP to MySQL is deprecated (php5-mysql). If you install the new package,

sudo apt-get install php-mysql

this will automatically update Apache and PHP 

Hope it works!!
