xampp and dreamweaver

Recommended Posts

I have developed several web sites using xampp within dreamweaver. One my new web site which has
frames as all of them do, my php scripts are not working properly. I am asked if I want to save or
open the php script, to open it will put me in dreamweaver. I am using dreamweaver 8.

On the ones I have previously created they also have frames and are working correctly. What could I
doing wrong. I get the same results on Netscape and IT. Apache, MYSQL, etc. is working. If I just go
to the page that call the php script from either of these the PHP script brings up the correct page.

Thanks for any help.

To asnwer your question this is what I use:

$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "username", "password") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("database",$conn) or die(mysql_error());

This worked for me with dreamweaver MX and dreamweaver 8.

I just hope someone can help me soon.

Thanks
Dee

To actually answer the topic question...
That means that your PHP script isn't running as a PHP script, it's running as a file. I'd make sure that your PHP is still running.

if you use php5, use mysqli extension... oop available for mysqli connection,
easier, and i think safer.
[code]
<?php
$mysqli = new mysqli ($host, $username, $password, $schema);
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) echo "error connection to database";
else
{

    //inset, update, alter, etc... which returns nothing.
    $mysqli->query ($query);
    if (mysqli_error ($mysqli)) echo "error updating database";


    //select
    $result = $mysqli->query ($query);
    if (!$result) echo "error getting information from database";
    elseif ($result->num_rows == 0) echo "no result";
    else
    {
        while ($row = $result->fetch_assoc())
        {
            //example:
            $something_id = $row['row_id'];
            $something_name = $row['row_name'];
        }
    }

    //if the result was successful ( even 0 row ) be sure to close result before user further $mysqli->query
    if ($result) $result->close();

    //and close the connection once your done.
    $mysqli->close(); //or unset ($mysqli)
?>[/code]
