  1. Here is my code, I am trying to create a function that connects to my local SQL DB using PDO instead of mysqli It looks like I can connect, the issue is that...I can't get my error message to show. "Could not connect to the database" will not come up, when I know that my user name and password are incorrect. I try changing the root name to test to get the error but it doesn't show up ....I can't see my mistake <?php //load test ...un comment exit test db con //exit ('test db con'); } class DB { protected static $con; private function _construct() { try{ self::$con = new PDO( 'mysql: host= localhost; dbname=testdb', 'root', 'password'); self::$con->setAttribute( PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION); self::$con->setAttribute( PDO::ATTR_PERSISTENT, false ); } catch (PDOException $e) { echo "Could not connect to database."; exit; } } public static function getConnection(){ //If this instance was not beem started, start it. if(!self::$con){ new DB(); } //Returns Writeable db connection return self::$con; } } ?>
