mysql_connect() not working from web (Newbie)
Posted 09 August 2006 - 09:19 PM
I am just trying certain operations to make sure MySQL server is working properly.
when I try to use the mysql_connect() function it works from command line on the server computer but not from a an http call. For example (code from test.php):
<TITLE> This is a Drag </TITLE>
$a = 0;
mysql_connect('localhost', 'user', 'passy');
mysql_select_db('wordpress') or die(mysql_error());
mysql_query("CREATE TABLE testerrrr(id INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, PRIMARY KEY(id), name VARCHAR(30), age INT)")
from command line:
<title> this is a drag </title>
(AND the table is created)
(no table created)
This means that the test.php is dying when i Try to call the mysql_connect funtion.
I have tried using 127.0.0.1 for localhost... localhost:port... and many other variations. Now remember I am a newbie and I might be doing something very simple wrong. It might not even be possible. Anyhow, I appreciate the input everyone!
