I am using a 3rd party lookup service. Basically, they have you connect to their mysql database, select their db and do a query.
$newconn = mysql_connect()
But if I try to do mysql_queries without sending $newconn I still get errors. For right now, I'm just closing my first connection and reconnecting, but it seems like there should be a way to query a second database without messing up the connect to the first one.
