PDO_PGSQL DSN

Connecting to PostgreSQL databases ()

The PDO_PGSQL Data Source Name (DSN) is composed of the following elements, delimited by spaces:

DSN prefix

The DSN prefix is pgsql:.

host

The hostname on which the database server resides.

port

The port on which the database server is running.

dbname

The name of the database.

user

The name of the user for the connection. If you specify the user name in the DSN, PDO ignores the value of the user name argument in the PDO constructor.

password

The password of the user for the connection. If you specify the password in the DSN, PDO ignores the value of the password argument in the PDO constructor.

Note:

The bytea fields are returned as streams.
