mysql_errno --  Returns the numerical value of the error message from previous MySQL operation


int mysql_errno ( [resource link_identifier])

Returns the error number from the last MySQL function, or 0 (zero) if no error occurred.

Errors coming back from the MySQL database backend no longer issue warnings. Instead, use mysql_errno() to retrieve the error code. Note that this function only returns the error code from the most recently executed MySQL function (not including mysql_error() and mysql_errno()), so if you want to use it, make sure you check the value before calling another MySQL function.

Example 1. mysql_errno() example

= mysql_connect("localhost", "mysql_user", "mysql_password");

if (!
mysql_select_db("nonexistentdb", $link)) {
mysql_errno($link) . ": " . mysql_error($link). "\n";

mysql_select_db("kossu", $link);
if (!
mysql_query("SELECT * FROM nonexistenttable", $link)) {
mysql_errno($link) . ": " . mysql_error($link) . "\n";

The above example would produce the following output:

1049: Unknown database 'nonexistentdb'
1146: Table 'kossu.nonexistenttable' doesn't exist

Note: If the optional argument is specified the given link is used to retrieve the error code. If not, the last opened link is used.
