Dear Supporter

We have two mysql based server both are running same version of o/s, and
mysql. One is acting as master and another one is acting as report server.
The report server is basically replicating data from master server.
From one another server which is acting a web server we are connecting
both server. All though we are not pointing any data manipulation
commands/queries to report server, our report(replication) server is
getting such query.
We are connecting our both servers with below function
"mysql_connect(server, user, pwd, false , 128)

What I am doubting is the fourth parameter is not behaving or returning
some abnormal connection from stack.

Please update me if I am wrong or give me some more specific input on

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

You should always use the named MYSQL_* constants - I have no idea what 128 stands for. Make sure you're assigning the return value of mysql_query to a variable and use that as connection identifier everywhere.
