Breaking: #61863 - deprecated connectDB from EidUtility removed

See forge#61863


Method connectDB() from \TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\Utility\EidUtility has been removed.


Extensions that still use the function connectDB() will trigger a fatal PHP error when an eID script is called.

Affected installations

A TYPO3 instance is affected if a 3rd party extension uses the removed function.


The function can be removed safely. The database will connect itself if needed.
