parsing problem with a PHP array

Recommended Posts

I have a situation were I need to just get a simple location.

I don't want any while loops or any of that jazz. 

I just want 1 string location every time. 


$ider = $_GET['id'];

        $conn = mysqli_connect("localhost", "Me", "pass", "MyDB"); 
        // Check connection
        if ($conn->connect_error) {
            die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);
        $sql = "SELECT Location FROM LifeSaver1 WHERE id =$ider";
        $result = $conn->query($sql);
        $obj = mysqli_fetch_object($result);
        $obj2 = $obj->Location;

This is what it outputs 


string(11) "Boston"

I just need Boston. Can anyone give me a hint?

For that matter, why have $obj2 at all! Just use $obj->Location where you want that value.
