Bug Description

On upgrade I get these errors in error.log

PHP Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; XMLDBpostgres has a deprecated constructor in /home/robertl/code/mahara-devel/mahara/htdocs/lib/xmldb/classes/generators/postgres/postgres.class.php on line 31

We need to update the lib/xmldb/ files so classes are constructed correctly



public function XMLDBpostgres($host, $queryPort)


public function __construct($host, $queryPort)
