odbc_pconnect — Connects to an ODBC data source.


resource odbc_pconnect(DSN, user, pass, cursor);
string DSN: DSN (Data Source Name)
string user: User name
string pass: Password
int cursor: Cursor type


Connection ID or error


Creates a connection to an ODBC database. If a connection has already been made and odbc_pconnect() is called again, the current connection ID is returned. odbc_pconnect() does not terminate the current database once the script has terminated, but keeps the connection open across subsequent scripts until odbc_close() has been called. If a username and password are not required, use empty quotes ("") rather than omitting the parameters. The cursor type is optional but useful for dealing with some ODBC drivers. The cursor types are SQL_CUR_USE_IF_NEEDED, SQL_CUR_USE_ODBC, SQL_CUR_USE_DRIVER, and SQL_CUR_DEFAULT.


Existing since version 3.0.6


Example 1352. Connect to database

$database = "DSN";
if (!$db = odbc_pconnect($database,"user","pass")) {
   echo "Could not connect to $database!\n";
