Hi Everyone!

So I'm sitting here trying to get my RSS feed to work off of my main database login script so that I can centralize the management of the whole blasted thing, you know... stuff like only having the password in one place to log into the DB :)

I can connect just fine if I include all the connection stuff locally in my file, but when I try and include it so I don't have to reinvent the wheel it says it can't connect.... Host, Username, & Password have all been checked and doubled checked. And actually the database connection script works just fine since I'm using it to pull the content from my main page and that's working just fine...

Here's the code I'm using locally on the page:

$server = "localhost";
$username = "realusername";
$password = "realpass";
$database = "realdatabase";

$linkID = mysql_connect($server, $username, $password) or die("Could not connect to host." . mysql_error()); mysql_select_db($database, $linkID) or die("Could not find database." . mysql_error($linkID));

That code works...

When I change it to:

$linkID = dbconnect($server, $username, $password, $database) or die("Could not connect to host." . mysql_error());

with that function defined as:

function dbconnect($server, $username, $password, $database) {
mysql_connect($server, $username, $password) or die("Unable to connect: ".mysql_error());

mysql_select_db($database) or die("Unable to select database:".mysql_error());


that will not work on my rss feed. But it does work on my main page which uses the dbconnect script. The only error that I'm getting is the one set in my dbconnect call... "Could not connect to host".

So can anyone see where I'm missing my comma or semicolon? :)
