dbase_openOpens a database


dbase_open ( string $filename , int $mode ) : resource

dbase_open() opens a dBase database with the given access mode.

Informacja: Gdy włączony jest tryb bezpieczny, PHP sprawdza, czy pliki lub katalogi, na których zostaną wykonane operacje mają takie same UID (owner) jak skrypt, który jest aktualnie wykonywany.


Ta funkcja podlega restrykcjom open_basedir.



The name of the database. It can be a relative or absolute path to the file where dBase will store your data.


An integer which correspond to those for the open() system call (Typically 0 means read-only, 1 means write-only, and 2 means read and write).


You can't open a dBase file in write-only mode as the function will fail to read the headers information and thus you can't use 1 as mode.

As of dbase 7.0.0 you can use DBASE_RDONLY and DBASE_RDWR, respectively, to specify the mode.

If you are wanting to open Foxpro tables using this, make sure they are in the 2.x format or php will not respond. In VFP use the following:

COPY TO tablename.dbf TYPE FOX2X

This is an easy way to bring database info to the web if you have a small foxpro setup.

COPY TO tablename.dbf TYPE FOXPLUS
The table is exported like DBase IV version and works fine with php.
