Can I create a script to "FLUSH QUERY CACHE" or "FLUSH LOGS" in MySQL using PHP?

Can someone provide an example script please?

Thanks!

I take it FLUSH QUERY CACHE is an SQL statement? Wouldn't this work?

mysql_query("FLUSH QUERY CACHE");

Try this, although I am not sure if you are allowed to run flush query cache from other ways than terminals.

<?php
  mysql_connect('myserver','myusername','mypassword') or die('no connection');
  mysql_query('FLUSH QUERY CACHE') or die('Query failed: '.mysql_error());
?>
