mysql_close

Close MySQL connection (PHP 4, PHP 5, PECL mysql:1.0)
bool mysql_close ( [resource link_identifier] )

mysql_close() closes the non-persistent 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.

Parameters

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 by chance no connection is found or established, an E_WARNING level warning is generated.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example 1414. mysql_close() example

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

The above example will output:

Connected successfully


Notes

Note:

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