Following is a quote from an entry in the documentation for mysql_select_db:

Just incase the mysql_select_db() function still won't work with multiple database connections (as has happened to me before).

$dbh1 = mysql_pconnect($host,$user,$pass);
$dbh2 = mysql_pconnect($host,$user,$pass);

You could do this...

mysql_query("USE database1",$dbh1);
mysql_query("Use database2",$dbh2);

This does the same thing as the mysql_select_db() function...

or this...

You don't even have to select the database for each connection.

mysql_query("SELECT * FROM database1.table",$dbh1);
mysql_query("SELECT * FROM database2.table",$dbh2);
