it give you cool html/css page if the connection to mysql is lost becuase of for example the user or password is incorrect.
It prevents search engines from archiving the current page and this is great becuase its an error page and this by this code:
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
it tells search engine crawlers how long to wait before trying again, which is the main advantage of using this method. The text on the page can be formatted any way you want, to inform human visitors what the problem is.



the code

<?php header('Retry-After: 172800'); ?>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
<title>Temporarily Closed</title>
<style type="text/css">
body {
background: url(background.gif) repeat;
margin: 5px 5px;
text-align: center;

text-align: left;
margin: 20% auto 0px auto;
width: 420px;

margin-left: 30px;
font-family: "Verdana", sans-serif;
font-weight: bold;
color: #000000;
div.transbox h1
