Moved to new server, now get MySQL error

Recommended Posts

I used this setup on another server and it worked OK. Now I am forced to move to a new server and the same code returns the error


\"Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/homes/public_html/browse.php3 on line 79\"


Note - line 79 is >> while ($myrow = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {


Here is the code:




$db = mysql_connect(\"localhost\", \"homes_Mike\", \"MySQL\");




$result = mysql_query(\"SELECT * FROM items2 ORDER BY Price ASC\",$db);


echo \"<center><table CELLPADDING=5 border=2 BORDERCOLOR=\'#000099\'> n\";


while ($myrow = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {


printf(\"<tr><td><font size=-1>%s</font></td><td><font size=-1>%s</font></td><td><font size=-1>%s</font></td><td><center><font size=-1>%s</font></center></td><td><center><font size=-1>%s</center></td><td><font size=-1>$%s</font></td><td><center><b><font size=-1>%s</font></b></center></td><td><center><font size=-1>%s</font></center></td></tr>n\",


$myrow[0], $myrow[1], $myrow[2], $myrow[3], $myrow[4], $myrow[5], $myrow[6], $myrow[7]);




echo \"</table></center>n\";




Any suggestions? I\'m in a bind to get this back up.

Are you sure the mysql servername is localhost and the username, password and database name are correct.


Your sql dose not look like its wrong unless you don\'t have that table or field.


Are you trying to connect from a different webserver to the same mysql server if so it will not be localhost (or the new server might not be localhost) my hosting company uses it servers IP address (not localhost)
