mysql_create_db

(PHP 3, PHP 4 , PHP 5)

mysql_create_db -- Create a MySQL database

Description

bool mysql_create_db ( string database_name [, resource link_identifier])

mysql_create_db() attempts to create a new database on the server associated with the specified link identifier.

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Example 1. MySQL create database example

<?php
$link
= mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');
if (!
$link) {
    die(
'Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}

if (
mysql_create_db('my_db')) {
    echo
"Database created successfully\n";
} else {
    echo
'Error creating database: ' . mysql_error() . "\n";
}
?>

For downwards compatibility mysql_createdb() can also be used. This is deprecated, however.

Note: The function mysql_create_db() is deprecated. It is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue a SQL CREATE DATABASE Statement instead.

Warning

This function will not be available if the MySQL extension was built against a MySQL 4.x client library.

See also mysql_query().
