mysql_errno

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

mysql_errnoReturns the numerical value of the error message from previous MySQL operation

Description

int mysql_errno ([ resource $link_identifier ] )

Returns the error number from the last MySQL function.

Errors coming back from the MySQL database backend no longer issue warnings. Instead, use mysql_errno() to retrieve the error code. Note that this function only returns the error code from the most recently executed MySQL function (not including mysql_error() and mysql_errno()), so if you want to use it, make sure you check the value before calling another MySQL function.

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 error number from the last MySQL function, or 0 (zero) if no error occurred.

Examples

Example #1 mysql_errno() example

<?php
$link 
mysql_connect("localhost""mysql_user""mysql_password");

if (!
mysql_select_db("nonexistentdb"$link)) {
    echo 
mysql_errno($link) . ": " mysql_error($link). "\n";
}

mysql_select_db("kossu"$link);
if (!
mysql_query("SELECT * FROM nonexistenttable"$link)) {
    echo 
mysql_errno($link) . ": " mysql_error($link) . "\n";
}
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

1049: Unknown database 'nonexistentdb'
1146: Table 'kossu.nonexistenttable' doesn't exist

Function for creating unique md5 keys in a database. If there are duplets, then a new md5-key will be generated. For your use:

  function users_md5create($id){
    global $mysql_link;

    while ($done==0) {
      $md5key = md5(time().($id/2).$loop).md5(time().$id.$loop);
      $query = "INSERT INTO users_md5create SET md5key='$md5key', fkey='$id', created=UNIX_TIMESTAMP() ";
      $mysql_result = mysql_query($query, $mysql_link);
      if(mysql_errno($mysql_link)!=1062) $done=1;
      $loop++;
    }
 
    return($md5key);
  }

All mysqld error messages are located into the file /usr/local/share/mysql/english/errmsg.txt and listed in numerical order from 999 to 1175. You can change the output language as well, issuing the '-L spanish' option for example. See the manual for more details.

If you are receiving errors like:
Warning: mysql_close(): 5 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource

Check that you are calling mysql_error() and mysql_errno() BEFORE you call mysql_close().
