Examples

Example #1 Object oriented style

<?php
$maxdb 
= new maxdb("localhost""MONA""RED""DEMODB");

/* check connection */
if (maxdb_connect_errno()) {
   
printf("Connect failed: %s\n"maxdb_connect_error());
   exit();
}

/* check if server is alive */
if ($maxdb->ping()) {
   
printf ("Our connection is ok!\n");
} else {
   
printf ("Error: %s\n"$maxdb->error);
}

/* close connection */
$maxdb->close();
?>

Example #2 Procedural style

<?php
$link 
maxdb_connect("localhost""MONA""RED""DEMODB");

/* check connection */
if (maxdb_connect_errno()) {
   
printf("Connect failed: %s\n"maxdb_connect_error());
   exit();
}

/* check if server is alive */
if (maxdb_ping($link)) {
   
printf ("Our connection is ok!\n");
} else {
   
printf ("Error: %s\n"maxdb_error($link));
}

/* close connection */
maxdb_close($link);
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Our connection is ok!
