in thread Multiple file handles

Thats actually a really good idea, We do use alot json stuff here, this might be a simpler way for me to do this, because I'd like to create 2 versions where I can run one on my machine, then use another to reference the database, but still not sure if I could reference mysql database on my local machine. i'll post more data once I get that connection working. This is what I have so far though.
my $database = "asterisk"; my $user = "root"; my $host =; my $password = 123; my $dbhA = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:$database,$host","$password") o +r die "Couldn't connect to database: ".DBI->errstr;
using DBI What would you recommed DBI vs DBD::mysql?

    DBI is the plumbing; DBD::mysql is the fitting. You need both.

    From the doc for DBD::mysql (plus your error handling):

    my $dsn = "DBI:mysql:database=$database;host=$hostname;port=$port"; my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $password) or die "Couldn't connec +t to database: ".DBI->errstr;
    Set up all those variables then use that exact code snippet and it should work for you.

    Hope this helps!

    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
      Yeah, that helped alot, I was trying to find an example where they use the dsn in the connect statement, wasn't sure I was doing it right since it kept failing, probably just need to make sure its got the right credentials since we have like 5 different servers for similar things.
