ibase_pconnect — Open a persistent database connection


resource ibase_pconnect(database[, username][, password][, charset][, buffers][, dialect][, role]);
string database: Path to the database file
string username (optional): Username
string password (optional): Password
string charset (optional): Name of character set the client is using
int buffers (optional): Number of cache buffers the database should allocate
int dialect (optional): Version number of InterBase's SQL dialect to use on the connection
string role (optional): Database access role to use


Persistent connection handle, FALSE on error


Connections opened with ibase_pconnect() won't close when your script ends. They do stay open for reuse in the future, and you'll get a connection handle to this already open connection when you call ibase_pconnect() with the same parameters as before.


Available in PHP 3 since 3.0.6, PHP 4


Example 547. Opening a persistent database connection

$db = ibase_pconnect('/opt/interbase/examples/employee.gdb') or die("Couldn't connect to database!");
