error accessing mysql_fetch_row results

Recommended Posts

The following php code is failing when a valid connection to a mysql database exists. I know $row is not empty because I have verified that.


$result = mysql_query($sql);

$row = mysql_fetch_row($result);

$status = $row['status'];

$logincount = $row['logincount'];



$status and $logincount have no value, i.e. = '', done this way. However, the calls


$status = $row[3];

$logincount = $row[4];


work and assign the correct value to $status and $logincount. Any idea why? It's so much easier to read if you can access the values by strings and not numbers, especially if you reorder your database.

What is the mysql_query?




The query is


$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE email = '$email' and password = '$pwd_hash' LIMIT 1";


The query does return a value because mysql_num_rows($sql) != 0 when I execute the query.

If you want to use an associative array, you need to tell mysql to give it to you.
