PHP mysql_connect

  1. I am trying to set up phplist on my web site. I keep getting a database connection error. I can successfully connect to db using code, as well as sql server manager. So I tested the code used to open database in a simple php page and get the following error

    Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Unknown MySQL server host 'tcp' (11004) in E:\web\thegwaac\lists\test2.php on line 2
    Could not connect: Unknown MySQL server host 'tcp' (11004)

    Here is code:

    $link = mysql_connect('', 'DB_XXXX_database_user', '*****');
    if (!$link) {
    die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
    echo 'Connected successfully';

  2. is not a MySQL server, it's an MS SQL server. We do not offer MySQL.
