I think what I am asking is something along the lines of this.

Why would you want to keep trying to connect? I'd say if it isn't connecting after 5 attempts, you have bigger issues to deal with, and shouldn't be trying to write your code around it....and to asnwer your question, wouldn't it be easier to do a redirect and reload the script again?


$doit = header("Location: connect.php");

@mysql_connect ($host, $dbusr, $dbpass) or die($doit);
