mysql_db_name -- Get result data


string mysql_db_name ( resource result, int row [, mixed field])

mysql_db_name() takes as its first parameter the result pointer from a call to mysql_list_dbs(). The row parameter is an index into the result set.

If an error occurs, FALSE is returned. Use mysql_errno() and mysql_error() to determine the nature of the error.

Example 1. mysql_db_name() example


$link = mysql_connect('dbhost', 'username', 'password');
$db_list = mysql_list_dbs($link);

$i = 0;
$cnt = mysql_num_rows($db_list);
while (
$i < $cnt) {
mysql_db_name($db_list, $i) . "\n";

For backward compatibility, mysql_dbname() is also accepted. This is deprecated, however.

See also mysql_list_dbs(), and mysql_tablename().
