The sql_selectdb() function is used to select a connection to a database server that offers a database for use. The function returns true of the operation is successful, otherwise it returns false. The sql_selectdb() function has 3 parameters: -# $nom being the name of the database to use, -# $serveur, -# $option. This function is used by SPIP during the installation routine to try to pre-select the name of the database to be used, by means of attempting to select a database with the same name as the login.
$test_base = $login_db;
$ok = sql_selectdb($test_base, $server_db);
