creating a mysql database with php problem


Recommended Posts

Hey im just starting to learn php and mysql
im using xampp as my server
iv established a connection between php and mysql im trying to create a dataasbe by using php. but i keep getting this error

File not found
Firefox can't find the file at /C:/xampp/htdocs/<?php echo( $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] ); ?>.

iv taken the code with only the slightest alterations (taken out the username and password) from a tutriol book the problem is the book has plenty of code samples but very little explanation. The code is below:

$conn = @mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "")
or die( "Sorry - could not connect to MYSQL" );

$rsl = @mysql_create_db( $_REQUEST['db'] );

$rs2 = @mysql_list_dbs( $conn );
for ( $row = o; $row < mysql_num_rows( $rs2 ); $row++ )
{ $list .= mysql_tablename( $rs2, $row) . " | ";

<html><head><title>Create a database</title></head>
<form action = "<?php echo( $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] ); ?>"
method="post">Current database:
<?php echo( $list ); ?>
<hr>Name: <input type = "text" name = "db">
<input type = "submit" value = "Create Database">

I know very little about php and cant see whats wrong with this as the book does not explain any help or links to tutorials would be great
