How To Connect to a MySQL Server with a Port Number in MySQL?

If you want to connect a MySQL server with a non-default port number, you need to use the "mysql_connect($server)" function with $server in the format of "hostName:portNubmber". The tutorial exercise below shows you how to connect to localhost at port number 8888:

<?php
  $con = mysql_connect('localhost:8888');
  if (!$con) {
    print("There is a problem with MySQL connection.\n");
  } else {
    print("The MySQL connection object is ready.\n");
    mysql_close($con); 
  }
?>

But this will not work, even you got the right port number, if your server requires user account authentication. In that case, It will give this output:

PHP Warning:  mysql_connect(): Access denied for user
   'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in fyi_cener.php
   on line 2
There is a problem with the MySQL connection.
