in reply to DBI can't catch error

If you fail to connect $Dbh will be undef. If $Dbh is not undef, you connected. So check $Dbh not $DBI::err.

    ok, that easy.

    So simplified it will be something like

    # Connect to MySQL server $Dbh = DBI->connect($DSN, $Config{'MYSQL_USER'}, $Config{'MYSQL_PASSWD +'}, { PrintError => 0, RaiseError => 0 }); # Check if connect went ok if (defined ($Dbh)) { # Good print "Successful connection with DB"; } else { # Problem! print "We had an error connecting to DB: ".$DBI::errstr; exit; }
