How to connect multiple MySQL databases on a single webpage ?

This article explains how to connect multiple MySQL databases into a single webpage. It is useful to access data from multiple databases.
There are two methods to connect multiple MySQL databases into a single webpage which are:

  • Using PDO (PHP Data Objects)

Syntax:

  • MySQLi Procedural syntax:

    $link = mysqli_connect( “host_name”, “user_name”, “password”, “database_name” );

  • MySQLi Object Oriented syntax:

    $link = new mysqli( “host_name”, “user_name”, “password”, “database_name” );

  • PDO (PHP Data Objects) syntax:

    $pdo = new PDO( “mysql:host=host_name; dbname=database_name”, “user_name”, “password” );
