Hi all,
I am experimenting troubles with my (ultra-cheap) mysql server. Connection string is:
  $dbh=mysql_connect ($hostName, $usr, $pwd);
  if ($dbh) {
       // etcetera

But when there is an database error I still want to show some information and avoid this warning message:

Warning: Too many connections in /var/apache/htdocs/tecnologico/index.php on line 16
Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Too many connections in /var/apache/htdocs/tecnologico/index.php on line 16

I want to show a message like "Page in maintenance. Please try in some minutes." and an Icon.

How do I can avoid these annoying messages?

Thanks in advance.

$dbh=@mysql_connect ($hostName, $usr, $pwd);

if(!dbh) {
 
   // echo your warning message here,..
}

@ suppresses the error.

Set display_errors=Off  in php.ini will avoid any error display

Oh, just like DOS batch files. Those where easy points.
Thanks,
