mysql_list_dbs

(PHP 3, PHP 4 )

mysql_list_dbs --  List databases available on a MySQL server

Description

resource mysql_list_dbs ( [resource link_identifier])

mysql_list_dbs() will return a result pointer containing the databases available from the current mysql daemon. Use the mysql_tablename() function to traverse this result pointer, or any function for result tables, such as mysql_fetch_array().

Example 1. mysql_list_dbs() example

<?php
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');
$db_list = mysql_list_dbs($link);

while ($row = mysql_fetch_object($db_list)) {
    echo $row->Database . "\n";
}
 ?>

The above example would produce the following output:

database1
database2
database3
 ...

Note: The above code would just as easily work with mysql_fetch_row() or other similar functions.

For downward compatibility mysql_listdbs() can also be used. This is deprecated however.

See also mysql_db_name().
