mysql_list_dbs -- List databases available on a MySQL server


int mysql_list_dbs ([int link_identifier])

mysql_list_dbs() will return a result pointer containing the databases available from the current mysql daemon. Use the mysql_tablename() function to traverse this result pointer.

Example 1. mysql_list_dbs() example

$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'myname', 'secret'); $db_list = mysql_list_dbs($link);  while ($row = mysql_fetch_object($db_list)) {   echo $row->Database . "\n"; }       

The above example would produce the following output:

database1 database2 database3 ...       

Note: The above code would just as easily work with mysql_fetch_row() or other similar functions.

For downward compatibility mysql_listdbs() can also be used.
