    A sample PHP page that connect to MySQL

    Overview: Here we will be connecting to MySQL database (mybuddy) and retrive data from that database.

    If you havent installed phpMyAdmin till now its a good time to configure that as it will make your life working with databases really easy!

    Before we continue we need to add a table with some data, I have made a sample table (guest_book) with some sample data, below is the dump that will create the table (guest_book) with some sample data.

    Okay now we have a table 'guest_book' let's write some php code to access the data from the MySQL database.

    I will again be storing these files under the mybuddy virtual directory that we had created earlier.

    data1.phpView Sample Output

    Run this code from your machine!
    * This above option is applicable only if you have saved the file (data1.php) under the virtual directoy mybuddy

    See how easy it is to connect to a MySQL database and access data with PHP. If nothing above makes any sense to you please refer to the PHP tutorials sections.
