Get MySQL host info (PHP 4 >= 4.0.5, PHP 5, PECL mysql:1.0)
string mysql_get_host_info ( [resource link_identifier] )

Describes the type of connection in use for the connection, including the server host name.



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 a string describing the type of MySQL connection in use for the connection or FALSE on failure.

if (!

'Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
printf("MySQL host info: %s\n", mysql_get_host_info());
