Examples

Example #1 PDO_IBM DSN example using db2cli.ini

The following example shows a PDO_IBM DSN for connecting to an DB2 database cataloged as DB2_9 in db2cli.ini:

$db = new PDO("ibm:DSN=DB2_9", "", "");

[DB2_9]
Database=testdb
Protocol=tcpip
Hostname=11.22.33.444
Servicename=56789

Example #2 PDO_IBM DSN example using a connection string

The following example shows a PDO_IBM DSN for connecting to an DB2 database named testdb using the DB2 CLI connection string syntax.

$db = new PDO("ibm:DRIVER={IBM DB2 ODBC DRIVER};DATABASE=testdb;" .
  "HOSTNAME=11.22.33.444;PORT=56789;PROTOCOL=TCPIP;", "testuser", "tespass");
