int mysql_close ([int link_identifier])
Returns: true on success, false on error.
mysql_close() closes the connection to the MySQL server that's associated with the specified link identifier. If link_identifier isn't specified, the last opened link is used.
Using mysql_close() isn't usually necessary, as non-persistent open links are automatically closed at the end of the script's execution.
Note: mysql_close() will not close persistent links created by mysql_pconnect().
Example 1. MySQL close example
<?php $link = mysql_connect ("kraemer", "marliesle", "secret") or die ("Could not connect"); print ("Connected successfully"); mysql_close ($link); ?>
