Text Replace Form. humm Database Install Page

Recommended Posts

Well im still working on my Bulletin Board.

Now i want to make a form to replace the database name,uname,upass

So say i got:

<form action="checksubmit.php"method="post">
DataBase Name:          <input type="text" name="username"><br>
User Name:    <input type="text" name="password"><br>
DB User Password:<input type="text" name="password2"><br>
<input type="submit" value="Register" name="submit"><br>

how could i make it so that when you click submit the input text changes the text thats in here:
$db_connection = mysql_connect("localhost", "username", "password");[/code]

and heres database thing
@mysql_select_db(databasename) or die( "unable to select database");

like when you click submit everything on the Form u intered Replaces the Database stuff.
