Request #6339 invalid Sybase-link resource - problem with last opened link
Submitted: 2000-08-24 18:01 UTC Modified: 2004-01-23 20:49 UTC

Status: Closed Package: Feature/Change Request
PHP Version: 4.0.2 OS: FreeBSD 3.4
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

I am giving the simplest example possible:

sybase_connect("abc","def","jkl"); // or die("Can't connect!");        
$res=sybase_query("Select * FROM Companies");

I always get this:

Warning: 1 is not a valid Sybase-Link resource in ...

Yet, if I replace 1st line with this:

$somevariable = sybase_connect("abc","def","jkl"); // or die("Can't connect!");

then everything works just fine (even though I do not really use $somevariable anywhere).

This probably means that the link it not being registered properly internally.

I did not have this problem with Sybase-dblib (yet there is a big problem wirg sybase_fetch_row - it core dumps PHP/Apache).

This confirmed to be a problem in version 4.0.2 as well

Actually, the same thing happens no matter what the database
is, so I'm going to reclassify this as a Feature Request, since there is a work around, and the syntax being used here
doesn't really make a whole lot of sense.

The basic issue: If you do not store the result of the
*_pconnect(), PHP discards it.

This bug has been fixed long, long ago, closing it:)
