I have a php file called "coldstart.php" which is supposed to check if a
database exists, and if not create it, and create the tables
associated with it. It attempts a pg_connect() with the database name
and other parameters. The first time it's run, this call returns false,
because the database doesn't exist. At that point, I connect to the
template1 database and create my target database, etc. After this, I
redirect to a different PHP script, using the header() directive.
This process works fine, insofar as it creates the database and tables.
However, when the first pg_connect() is called with the name of the
non-existent database, PostgreSQL/PHP dumps the following error message:
Warning: pg_connect(): Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: FATAL:
database "webcust" does not exist in /var/www/qmsi/webcust/db.php on line 39
Well and good. Except that when the script gets down to the header()
call (after creating the database and tables), it has a problem, because
headers have already been sent, in the form of the aforementioned error
message. So it barfs right there.
So the question is: Is it possible to shut off this "chatter" that
PostgreSQL/PHP puts out when an error such as this occurs?
