mysql_get_server_info

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

Retrieves the MySQL server version.

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 the MySQL server version on success, or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example 1445. mysql_get_server_info() example

<?php
$link
= mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');
if (!
$link) {
   die(
'Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}
printf("MySQL server version: %s\n", mysql_get_server_info());
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

MySQL server version: 4.0.1-alpha
