Returns: A positive MySQL result identifier to the query result, or false on error.
mysql_db_query() selects a database and executes a query on it. If the optional link identifier isn't specified, the function will try to find an open link to the MySQL server and if no such link is found it'll try to create one as if mysql_connect() was called with no arguments
See also mysql_connect().
For downwards compatibility mysql() can also be used.
