resource ifx_connect(string $database[, string $userid, string $password])
ifx_connect() establishes a connection to an Informix server.
In case a second call is made to ifx_connect() with the same arguments, no new link will be established, but instead, the link identifier of the already opened link will be returned.
The link to the server will be closed as soon as the execution of the script ends, unless it's closed earlier by explicitly calling ifx_close().
Returns a connection identifier on success, or
FALSE on error.
- string $database: The database name, as a string.
- string $userid: The username, as a string.
- string $password: The password, as a string.
Example #1 Connect to a Informix database
$conn_id = ifx_connect ("mydb@ol_srv1", "imyself", "mypassword");
