You need to make a new link. So you would add TRUE to the end of the
second connection.

$connmy=mysql_connect("host","user","pass", TRUE);


Thanks, will give that a shot

I forgot to add your queries will need the new link too. So

mysql_query("DELETE from userprefs where clientr='$User'", $connmy);
