mysql_close -- Close MySQL connection


int mysql_close ([int link_identifier])

Returns: true on success, false on error.

mysql_close() closes the connection to the MySQL server that's associated with the specified link identifier. If link_identifier isn't specified, the last opened link is used.

Using mysql_close() isn't usually necessary, as non-persistent open links are automatically closed at the end of the script's execution.

Note: mysql_close() will not close persistent links created by mysql_pconnect().

Example 1. MySQL close example

    $link = mysql_connect ("kraemer", "marliesle", "secret")
        or die ("Could not connect");
    print ("Connected successfully");
    mysql_close ($link);
