    How do I connect to a database

    I'm having problems connecting to my database.

    I have had my site working perfectly on brinkster, but when I've moved it over to my new host it doesn't work.

    How do I know what way I should be connecting to the database i.e. DNS-less, system DNS or file DNS etc.

    Could some one recommend a good link on how to connect to a database? The ones I've been looking at are a bit difficult to understand.

    You need to talk to your host service about what they support.

    How do I connect to a database
    MOst hosting companies will offer DSN-less connections. To establish a DSN connection though - tha will normally be through the hosting company. It would be ideal of course if you knew how you were connecting at Brinkster & that way you do not have to change any coding. It sounds like you might have use a DSN before since you are not able to connect now, unless you renamed your database or you moved your database to a different folder.
