DSN and DSN-less connections

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 14/9/2006 databases

DSN stands for "Data Source Name". It is an easy way to assign useful and easily rememberable names to data sources which may not be limited to databases alone. DSN-less connections don't require creation of system level DSNs for connecting to databases and provide an alternative to DSNs. This tutorial will show you how to connect to an Access database with a DSN and without a DSN.
