pg_lo_create - Create a large object
Code Examples

pg_lo_create( [PgSql\Connection$connection], [mixed$object_id] ): int
intpg_lo_create mixedobject_id



An PgSql\Connection instance. When connection is unspecified, the default connection is used. The default connection is the last connection made by pg_connect or pg_pconnect.


As of PHP 8.1.0, using the default connection is deprecated.


If an object_id is given the function will try to create a large object with this id, else a free object id is assigned by the server. The parameter relies on functionality that first appeared in PostgreSQL 8.1.

Return Values

A large object OID, or false on failure.


Version Description
8.1.0 The connection parameter expects an PgSql\Connection instance now; previously, a resource was expected.
