Red face PHP Help

I am having a bit of rouble with some PHP code..

When I run a particular bit of code I made, this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: db_connect() in /home/torkmc6/public_html/test/application.php on line 48

I thikn I coded it properly, but I guess I made a slight mistake.. :/

If the function to connect to a database is not db_connect(), then what is it?

BTW, here is the little snippet of code that I think is causing the problem:

/* connect to the database */
db_connect($CFG->dbhost, $CFG->dbname, $CFG->dbuser, $CFG->dbpass);

Isn't Klonoa CUTE!

lol... If you want to connect to mySQL database use this code:

PHP Code:
$db mysql_connect($dbhost,$dbuser,$dbpass) or die("Cound not connect to the MySQL database.");
$dbhost is often localhost
God that was a bad typo...

most connections have database-specific functionality, such as mysql_connect or pg_connect. I believe the function odbc_connect is a generally-encompasing database connection function.

You also have to keep in mind that you have to configure PHP explicitively with support for the database you plan to use in most cases. ex. --with-pgsql for PostgreSQL

I believe in Windows you can add the lines for the precompiled modules for PHP into the php.ini pretty easily without much fuss or explicitely include the support into a page with the dl() function.
