mysql_close

(PHP 3, PHP 4 )

mysql_close -- Close MySQL connection

Description

bool mysql_close ( [resource link_identifier])

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

mysql_close() closes the connection to the MySQL server that's associated with the specified link identifier. If link_identifier isn't specified, the last opened link is used.

Using mysql_close() isn't usually necessary, as non-persistent open links are automatically closed at the end of the script's execution. See also freeing resources.

Note: mysql_close() will not close persistent links created by mysql_pconnect().

Example 1. MySQL close example

<?php
    $link = mysql_connect("localhost", "mysql_user", "mysql_password")
        or die("Could not connect: " . mysql_error());
    print ("Connected successfully");
    mysql_close($link);
 ?>

See also mysql_connect() and mysql_pconnect().
