php mysql simple script not working.


Recommended Posts

Hello. i am writing an API for lua... that sends POST requests to a php script. this php script is malfunctioning. below is the code and error.



        $host = $_POST['host'];
        $port = $_POST['port'];
        $user = $_POST['user'];
        $password = $_POST['password'];
        $db = $_POST['db'];
        $query = $_POST['query'];
        $query = urldecode($query);
        $connection = mysql_connect($host,$user,$password) or die("err1");
        mysql_select_db($db) or die("err2");
        $resource = mysql_query($query);
        $rows = array();
        while($r = mysql_fetch_object($resource)){
                $rows[] = $r;
        echo json_encode($rows);
//echo $rows;



html passed to JSON:decode(): <br /><b>Warning</b>: mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not valid MySQL result resource in [server url] on line 17


Note: it does actually connect to the Database as per previous experiments with the code. JSON:decode() is working and therefore not the problem, since it was the PHP that gave this error to the JSON handler API. The server is working correctly as i use it all the time to make MySQL requests. though, never with this php code. i use a framework to do it for me. but it seems to be working correctly which verifies this php script ás what is malfunctioning.
