Using mysql_select_db() function we can select a database in PHP is mysql is in connected state. Following sample code may help you -

$db=mysql_pconnect(<hostname>, <username>, <password>);
if (is_resource($db)) {
   if (!mysql_select_db(<database>, $db)) {
          // <report error>;
// Now we can use $db in various operation

I have a client where their next auto-increment number just jumped from 2300 to 1000000000 for reasons not understood. They want it set back.

Options such as dropping the primary key and rebuilding the index is NOT possible -- this is a relational table thing. So, is there a way (programmatically) to set the next number in an auto-increment?

Something like:

alter table abc auto_increment = 2301;

Any ideas of why this happened?
