#34903 closed feature request (fixed)

wpdb needs a close function

Reported by: fabifott's profile fabifott Owned by: pento's profile pento
Milestone: 4.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:

Focuses: performance Cc:


For a complete abstraction of the database access, the wpdb class needs a close() function.
A sample situation is a file-serving script, that runs for a long time reading a big file and pumping the bytes to the browser. Here a database connection is an unneeded resource and should be closed as soon as the IO pump starts.

Would you accept a pull request?

Or at least make wpdb::$dbh somehow accessible. Its not good practice to hide the DB layer completly in an non-complete abstraction.

WPDB: Add a close() method to wpdb, for when the connection needs to be manually closed.

In the event that it was closed prematurely, wpdb::query() will re-open the connection automatically.

Hey @pento, I assume the logic inside the unit tests can now also be deleted?

What does close method mean if you are using a db dropin like hyperdb? The hyperdb drop in is massively out of date now, many of the features in core not reflected. Changed like this need to be communicated db drop-in creators.
