I am trying to use 2 instances of postgresql database on the same computer. any idea how should i use pg_connect
I was able to connect to one instance of postgresql using pg_connect successfully. However I have created a second instance for a new web application. How to specify parameter to connect to both databases on the same php code using pg_connect.
It is literally the first example given on php.net reference page for pg_connect
$dbconn = pg_connect("dbname=mary"); //connect to a database named "mary" $dbconn2 = pg_connect("host=localhost port=5432 dbname=mary"); // connect to a database named "mary" on "localhost" at port "5432" $dbconn3 = pg_connect("host=sheep port=5432 dbname=mary user=lamb password=foo"); //connect to a database named "mary" on the host "sheep" with a username and password
Just change the connection string and declare multiple connection objects and you should be fine
