Connect PHP With MySQL

The previous post I've described a little about MySQL functions in PHP. Maybe in your previous posts are still confused. Because I was just giving an explanation without an example.Following I will give an example of using the mysql functions in php. So, we will discuss examples of how to connect PHP with MySQL.

The first step we create a file named config.php which serves to connect a PHP file with MySQL.



note :
"localhost" = hostname MySQL
"root"         = username MySQL
""                = password MySQL (password is not filled)
"data"         = database name

This is the default if you use XAMPP for local web server. Customize to your web server. Next create a file named index.php.


$query= mysql_query("select * from table_data");
$rows = mysql_num_rows($query);
echo "Number of rows = $rows <p>";
while ($result = mysql_fetch_array($query)){
    echo "$result[0]<br>";

note :
table_name = table name used (adjust yours).

if successful will appear as shown below
