MyDB::connect(3) Connect to a database.


MyDB connect( String host, String user, String pwd, String db, Int port=0 )


host The database host to connect to

user The database user to connect as

pwd The password for that user

db The database to connect to

port The port that the database server is running on. This defaults to zero, which is suitable when connecting to a server on 'localhost'. The usual MySQL port for remote servers is 3306.


Use this function to connect to the database. You can then use the functions from DB(3kaya) to query the database.

 db = MyDB::connect("localhost","web","WHSpWXPPh5","mysite");
 res = exec(db,"SELECT * FROM pagedata WHERE page_id = 10");
