Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the PHP PostgreSQL extension interface, part of PostgreSQL 9 with PHP Essential Training.

Before you continue, it's important that you update the password in this file to…match the password you entered when you created the sid user in PG admin.…You see here on line 14 I have foo.bar.…This is where you'll need to put a password for your sid user exactly as you…entered it in PG admin.…And this is based on the sandbox code that we used in the QuickStart chapter.…It's got a couple little differences.…Down here in init function you notice that it doesn't connect to the database.…The main function doesn't have a lot of the stuff that was there in the original…
