5.5.29 mysql_get_server_info

Copyright 1997-2014 the PHP Documentation Group.

Warning

This extension is deprecated as of PHP 5.5.0, and will be removed in the future. Instead, the MySQLi or PDO_MySQL extension should be used. See also MySQL: choosing an API guide and related FAQ for more information. Alternatives to this function include:

mysqli_get_server_info
PDO::getAttribute(PDO::ATTR_SERVER_VERSION)

Description

string mysql_get_server_info(resource link_identifier= =NULL);

Retrieves the MySQL server version.

Parameters

link_identifier

The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not specified, the last link opened by mysql_connect is assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to create one as if mysql_connect was called with no arguments. If no connection is found or established, an E_WARNING level error is generated.

Return Values

Returns the MySQL server version on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example 5.36 mysql_get_server_info example


<?php
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');
if (!$link) {
    die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}
printf("MySQL server version: %s\n", mysql_get_server_info());
?>

    

The above example will output something similar to:


MySQL server version: 4.0.1-alpha
