mysql_create_db

(PHP 3, PHP 4 )

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_pconnect("localhost", "mysql_user", "mysql_password")
        or die("Could not connect: " . mysql_error());

    if (mysql_create_db("my_db")) {
        print ("Database created successfully\n");
    } else {
        printf ("Error creating database: %s\n", mysql_error());
    }
 ?>

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_drop_db() and mysql_query().
