Here is a PDO helper class to get you started . . .

define('DB_MAIN', 'localhost|user1|pa55word|db1');

// Connect to database db1
$db = new my_db(DB_MAIN);

// Request "SELECT * FROM table1 WHERE a=16 AND b=22"
// Get an array of stdClass's
$rows = $db->fetchAll('SELECT * FROM table1 WHERE a=? AND b=?', 16, 22);

class my_db{

    private static $databases;
    private $connection;

    public function __construct($connDetails){
            list($host, $user, $pass, $dbname) = explode('|', $connDetails);
            $dsn = "mysql:host=$host;dbname=$dbname";
            self::$databases[$connDetails] = new PDO($dsn, $user, $pass);
        $this->connection = self::$databases[$connDetails];
    public function fetchAll($sql){
        $args = func_get_args();
        $statement = $this->connection->prepare($sql);       
         return $statement->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_OBJ);

New users are advised to use MySQL Improved mysqli_ functions rather than the older [replaced] mysql_ functions where applicable and subject the appropriate latest stable versions of Apache, php and MySQL, etc.

This is deprecated. Get a brain morans and stop using it.

Had to say it because this is still a top google result for "php mysql" and Someone has to deal with the crap code from the previous "php expert".
