mysql_list_dbs

mysql_list_dbs

(PHP 3, PHP 4, PHP 5)

mysql_list_dbs -- List databases available on a MySQL server

Description

resource mysql_list_dbs ( [resource link_identifier] )

Returns a result pointer containing the databases available from the current mysql daemon.

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 a result pointer resource on success, or FALSE on failure. Use the mysql_tablename() function to traverse this result pointer, or any function for result tables, such as mysql_fetch_array().

Examples

Example 1. mysql_list_dbs() example

<?php
$link
= mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');
$db_list = mysql_list_dbs($link);

while (
$row = mysql_fetch_object($db_list)) {
     echo
$row->Database . "\n";
}
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

database1
database2
database3
