Subject: Re: [PHP-DB] Connecting to two MySQL databases

I don't see a reason to duplicate the class code, just make it keep track of
the $link variable, and each instance of the class can be a seperate
connection.. Then you can do what you want:

$db1 = new dbconn;
$db2 = new dbconn;

$db1->dbconn($host, $user, $pw);
$db2->dbconn($host2, $user2, $pw2);

$result_from_first_db = $db1->retrieveData($sql);
$result_from_second_db = $db2->retrieveData($sql);

You're making the class too specific. IMHO.
