Response to: Connect to MySQL DB

Your Problem is that the database connection isn't using the mysql connection. If you did it like this:


mysql_connect($hostname,$username, $password) or die ('Error connecting to mysql');
mysql_select_db($dbname);


it might work. since you were making the mysql cnnection a variable, your database connection couldn't use it. now if you make the mysql connection not a variable then anything in the script can access it.
