PHP Manual


mysql_db_query

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

mysql_db_querySelects a database and executes a query on it

Description

resource mysql_db_query ( string $database , string $query [, resource $link_identifier = NULL ] )

mysql_db_query() selects a database, and executes a query on it.

Warning

This function has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0. Relying on this feature is highly discouraged.

Parameters

database

The name of the database that will be selected.

query

The MySQL query.

Data inside the query should be properly escaped.

link_identifier

The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not specified, the last link opened by mysql_connect() is assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to create one as if mysql_connect() was called with no arguments. If no connection is found or established, an E_WARNING level error is generated.

Return Values

Returns a positive MySQL result resource to the query result, or FALSE on error. The function also returns TRUE/FALSE for INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE queries to indicate success/failure.

Changelog

Version Description
5.3.0 This function now throws an E_DEPRECATED notice.
4.0.6 This function is deprecated, do not use this function. Use mysql_select_db() and mysql_query() instead.

Examples

Example #1 mysql_db_query() alternative example

<?php

if (!$link mysql_connect('mysql_host''mysql_user''mysql_password')) {
    echo 
'Could not connect to mysql';
    exit;
}

if (!
mysql_select_db('mysql_dbname'$link)) {
    echo 
'Could not select database';
    exit;
}

$sql    'SELECT foo FROM bar WHERE id = 42';
$result mysql_query($sql$link);

if (!
$result) {
    echo 
"DB Error, could not query the database\n";
    echo 
'MySQL Error: ' mysql_error();
    exit;
}

while (
$row mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
    echo 
$row['foo'];
}

mysql_free_result($result);

?>

Notes

Note:

Be aware that this function does NOT switch back to the database you were connected before. In other words, you can't use this function to temporarily run a sql query on another database, you would have to manually switch back. Users are strongly encouraged to use the database.table syntax in their sql queries or mysql_select_db() instead of this function.
