mysql_reset_connection - Resets connection and clears session state


#include <mysql.h>

int mysql_reset_connection(MYSQL * mysql);


Resets the current connection and clears session state. Similar to mysql_change_user(3) or mariadb_reconnect(3), mysql_reset_connection() resets session status, but without disconnecting, opening, or reauthenticating.

On client side mysql_reset_connection() * clears pending or unprocessed result sets * clears status like affected_rows, info or last_insert_id * invalidates active prepared statements

On server side mysql_reset_connection() * drops temporary table(s) * rollbacks active transaction * resets autocommit mode * releases table locks * initializes session variables (and sets them to the value of corresponding global variables) * closes active prepared statements * clears user variables


Return value

Returns zero on success, non zero if an error occurred.
