This is a simple class that can connect to MySQL and store connections in sessions.

It can connect to a given MySQL database server using MySQLi and optionally store the connection in a session variable.

The class can also disconnect from the database and clear the respective session variable if it was set.

#we create a simple connect without specify the db to connect

$simple = new db_connect("localhost", "my_user", "my_pass");
$simple_con = $simple->connect(); #we receive the connection variable
#we make our sql statements and procedures as normal

#create connection specifying the data base

$database = new db_connect("my_host", "my_user", "my_pass", "my_db");
$database_con = $database->connect();
#our sql statements

#if we want to save the connection in a session variable we use:
$s = new db_connect("my_host", "my_user", "my_pass", "my_db", true);
#we don't receive the connection variable, the session is stored
#in: $_SESSION["conn"]
#our sql statements
#est bleu
$s->disconnect(); #the session variable value is now false
#and the connection is closed
