mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid...


Recommended Posts

I have searched for this topic here but have not found reference to it.


I am receiving the following:

Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/a4542527/public_html/index.php on line 8


The scripting for this is basic at this point (I am building something in steps and this is just a test section: The script will call data from the table and display said data.)


The following is the code (two, separate files located on my server)- I am hoping that someone may see something that I am missing.



    $dbhost = 'mysql7.000webhost.com';
    $dbuser = 'a4542527_root';
    $dbpass = '**********';
    $db = 'a4542527_test1';
    $conn = mysql_connect($dbhost,$dbuser,$dbpass);




    include 'connection.php';
    $query = "SELECT * FROM people";
    $result = "mysql_query($query)";
    while ($person = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
    echo  $person ['name'];
    echo  $person ['descrip'];


Thank-you for any help, suggestions or a point in the right direction.
