// define vars
$sqlhost = "localhost";
$db_user = "sql_user_name";
$db_password = "sql_user_name_password";

// now make the connection.
// note: $dbh is the database handle, you can make
//        multiple connections if you want or give it
//        a differenet name.

$dbh = mysql_connect($sqlhost,$db_user,$db_password);
