YES, this is the problem.
$dblink2 = mysql_connect(........) is getting false (so no resource object),
so $dblink is not correct parameter for mysql_error() function and it works
same way as there is no parameter.

OK, so mysql_error is not usable for me in this case.
Is in PHP any other way how to get error-message from connect function?
Isn't in PHP any other function, that can be used similiar?
