I need to use a php variable in an if.. else clause outside of the block of php code and can't get it working. The existing code block is below. All help is appreciated.

$chk is the variable from the php block and is numeric.

<?php if($chk == 0) { 
  <div id='showMe'>
   <div class="container">
      <div class="row" style="color:red; padding-top:6rem; text-align:center;">
         <h1>Database Update Failed</h1>
      </div>
   </div>
 </div> }
 
else  { 
<div id='showMe'>
  <div class="container">
      <div class="row" style="padding-top:6rem; text-align:center;" >
        <h1><center>Database Update Successful</center></h1>
      </div>
  </div>
endif
</div>  

 </div>  
   </body>
</html>

Thanks much.

Curly braces and endif don't play nice together. Use one syntax or the other.

<?php if($chk == 0) { ?>

  <div id='showMe'>
   <div class="container">
      <div class="row" style="color:red; padding-top:6rem; text-align:center;">
         <h1>Database Update Failed</h1>
      </div>
   </div>
 </div> 
 
<?php } 
      else  
      { ?>
 
    <div id='showMe'>
      <div class="container">
          <div class="row" style="padding-top:6rem; text-align:center;" >
            <h1><center>Database Update Successful</center></h1>
          </div>
      </div>

    </div>  

<?php }  ?> 

</body>
</html>

Thanks, Barand. It's working better but now I get both results from the if clause when $chk =1.

<?php if($chk == 0)  ?>
  <div id='showMe'>
   <div class="container">
      <div class="row" style="color:red; padding-top:6rem; text-align:center;">
         <h1>Database Update Failed</h1>
      </div>
   </div>
 </div>  
else 
  <div id='showMe'>
    <div class="container">
      <div class="row" style="color:black; padding-top:6rem; text-align:center;" >
        <h1>Database Update Successful</h1>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
