||Using MySQL from PHP|
|Subject:||trouble getting PHP5 to connect to SQL database|
I am new to PHP and MySQL. I am using windows
XP OS. I have installed the Apache server, MySQL and PHP5. When I run "localhost" it shows that the apache sever is running. I can run a test which shows that PHP and Apache work together. I have SQL running and I can create databases, etc uing the command prompt or the MySQL Admin program.
But I cannot get PHP5 to connect to the databases. What am I doing wrong? Help is very much appreciated.
