Following is a quote from an entry in the php.net documentation for mysql_select_db:

Just incase the mysql_select_db() function still won't work with multiple database connections (as has happened to me before).

$dbh1 = mysql_pconnect($host,$user,$pass);
$dbh2 = mysql_pconnect($host,$user,$pass);

You could do this...

mysql_query("USE database1",$dbh1);
mysql_query("Use database2",$dbh2);

This does the same thing as the mysql_select_db() function...

or this...

You don't even have to select the database for each connection.

mysql_query("SELECT * FROM database1.table",$dbh1);
mysql_query("SELECT * FROM database2.table",$dbh2);

RTFM is an almost extinct art form, it should be subsidized.

Thanks guys for the quick reply,im still getting afew problems since im using wordpress and adding this feature to the login form.
this is what i added


function login($username, $password, $already_md5 = false) {

	global $wpdb, $wpdb1, $error, $tableusers;
 if($username && $password){

if($_POST['submit']) {


$query = "SELECT ID, user_login, user_pass FROM $tableusers, WHERE user_login = '$username'";

$login =mysql_query($query);



$query2 = "SELECT ID, user_login, user_pass FROM $tableusers, WHERE user_login = '$username'";

$login =mysql_query($query2);

and in the wp-config.php
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'wp1');     // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'root');     // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');     // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

define('DB_NAME1', 'wp1fake');     // The name of the database
define('DB_USER1', 'root');     // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD1', ''); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST1', 'localhost');     // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

$table_prefix  = 'wp_';   // example: 'wp_' or 'b2' or 'mylogin_'

define ('WPLANG', '');

/* Stop editing */

$server = DB_HOST;
$loginsql = DB_USER;
$passsql = DB_PASSWORD;
$base = DB_NAME;

/* Stop editing */

$server1 = DB_HOST1;
$loginsql1 = DB_USER1;
$passsql1 = DB_PASSWORD1;
$base1 = DB_NAME1;
When i enter the username and pass in wp-login.php it says
Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in c:\appserv\www\wp\wp-login.php on line 14
which is
$query = "SELECT ID, user_login, user_pass FROM $tableusers, WHERE user_login = '$username'";
Sorry im brand new in php :(  please excuse my silly mistakes.
