why won't this work? Seems simple enough


Recommended Posts

$sql = 'SELECT * FROM account_info WHERE username ="'.$name.'"';
$result = mysql_query($sql) . mysql_error();
$row = mysql_fetch_row($result);


I get


Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource


I'm trying to output the row "wins" for a certain user.

$result = mysql_query($sql) . mysql_error();


^^^ By concatenating msyql_error() with the result of the mysql_query() in the above line of code, you are likely corrupting the value being put into $result.


That line of code should be as follows to get it to display the mysql_error() value if the query fails -


$result = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
