Establishing DB connection with mysql_connect

PHP provides built-in function mysql_connect to establish database connection with MySQL database. See the syntax below

connection mysql_connect(server,user,passwd,new_link,client_flag);

We have assumed that you have created a database with:

database name = testdb

user name = tesuser

password = testpassword

at your local system.

In that case:

DB host = “localhost”
