FYI: I have tried using other solutions that have been posted to resolve this query, but haven't had any success. I have decided to use the code below as it seems the most logical to accomplish my task. However, if there is a solution that is completely different, that is fine - as long as it works.

Within the same server, there are two databases with the same field names.

Both DBs:

I am trying to grab all passwords from DB#2 (correct pwds) and move them to DB#1 (incorrect pwds) based upon each user's email address. Unfortunately, I cannot use ID's as they are different for each user per database.

The code below is not working. I am not receiving any errors - it's just not making the update.

Also, I realize that this type of coding has been deprecated. If anyone has this solution using newer syntax, that would be great.




$conn1 = mysql_connect($dbhost1, $dbuser1, $dbpass1);
$conn2 = mysql_connect($dbhost2, $dbuser2, $dbpass2, true);
if(! $conn1 || ! $conn2 )
die('Could not connect to db1 or db2: ' . mysql_error());

mysql_select_db('db1', $conn1);
mysql_select_db('db2', $conn2);

$query = "UPDATE db1.users as t1, db2.users as t2 SET t1.pwds = t2.pwds WHERE t1.emails = t2.emails";

mysql_query($query, $conn2);
