mysql_create_db

Create a MySQL database (PHP 4, PHP 5, PECL mysql:1.0)
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.

Parameters

database_name

The name of the database being created.

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 1418. mysql_create_db() alternative example

The function mysql_create_db() is deprecated. It is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue a sql CREATE DATABASE statement instead.

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

$sql = 'CREATE DATABASE my_db';
if (
mysql_query($sql, $link)) {
   echo
"Database my_db created successfully\n";
} else {
   echo
'Error creating database: ' . mysql_error() . "\n";
}
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Database my_db created successfully


Notes

For downward compatibility, the following deprecated alias may be used:

Note:

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