Please be more specific of what you need help with as it relates to databases. For basic connect, select, and fetch see tutorials and code example at the FAQ page link bellow. Look for my post there related to MySQL data retrieval.

[code]<?php
{
    //attempt to connect to the database server
    //if the attempt was successful
    if (@mysql_connect('localhost', 'user', 'pass))) {
    
        //attempt to select the mycms databse
        //if the attempt was successful
        if (@mysql_select_db("test")) {
    
        //return true
        return TRUE;
        
        //Or if the selection was unsuccessful
        } else {
        
            //display error message
            echo "<p>Unable to select the database .</p>";
            
            //Return False
            return FALSE;
        }
        
    } else {
    
        //Display the error message
        echo "<p>Unable to connect to the database server</p>";
    
        //return false
        return FALSE;
    }
}

$query = "SELECT * FROM people"; //put some other criteria in to refine your query
$result = mysql_query ($query);

// check to see how many rows we have. if we have 0 rows then nothing has returned
if(mysql_num_rows($result) < 1) {

    echo('<p>the is no data in the table!</p>');

} else {
        
         //run through the results of the query and put the result into an array called $row
    while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {

?>//stop the while loop and display the records

<p>here are the details of the field name<?= $row['fieldName'] ?></p> <!--change field name and fieldName for the correct names of the table fields. -->

<?php
    
} //end the while loop

?> [/code]

that should get you started
