If no error has occured, this function will return an empty string.

Return Values

A string that describes the error. An empty string if no error occurred.


Example 1. mysqli_connect_error sample


$link = @mysqli_connect("localhost", "nonexisting_user", "");

if (!$link) {
    printf("Can't connect to localhost. Error: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());
