Recommended Posts

 

i test codes using remote connection ot host gator. but have to each time uncomment to swtich it back to connection that would work live on server. is there a solution such as try remote connection catch regular connection?


  $conn = mysqli_connect("50.87.155.149", "nadavrock", "xxx", "nadavroc_personal_website");
// $conn = mysqli_connect("localhost", "nadavrock", "xxx", "nadavroc_personal_website");
// Check connection
if ($conn->connect_error) {
die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);
}

First, tell mysqli to throw exceptions on errors

mysqli_report(MYSQLI_REPORT_ERROR|MYSQLI_REPORT_STRICT);

then try{} it.

All you need is a simple if else checking $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] and setting the connection parameters accordingly

i am new to php. can you give me the code for the simple if else statment?

Since you are new, you may not know the authors of Php have offered a free manual. You will need to refer to this manual all throughout your programming journey so best to bookmark it. Php Manual.

Here is the specific manual page that will teach you about if/elsif/else.
