#76 Port for mysql(i)-connection can be specified

Database (4)
Hans Bert

This patch should be applied to funtions.inc.php. In addition to the patch a configuration-directive in config.inc.php has to be added: $CONF['database_port'] = '3306'

    according to php.net/mysql_connect; you can specify the port for a MySQL connection by specifying hostname:port

    e.g. $CONF['database_host'] = '' ;

    So I'm not sure why your patch is needed - at least for a MySQL database. PostgreSQL seems to handle ports differently.

    I added this, because I'm using mysqli which seems not to accept the notation you mention. and for consistency-reasons this should than be a conf-directive so it works also if you switch to mysql (or postgresql, but you would have to add this for yourself in functionsinc.php, i'm not into postgresql)
