Hi all todays programing tip is about DATABASES.
To create a connection to a database is very simple.
one way i like to do it is create a database connection file. i usually call it db_conn.php
In this db_conn file i keep all my connection settings.
the file contains the following:
When you want to connect to you database there is a few things you must do.
1. The page that receives the data must be PHP
2. At the top of the page you must add the db_conn file.
3. When every you want to connect to the db just use this.
$query = “Insert into post (field1, field2, field3,) values (‘” .$value1.”‘,'” .$value2.”‘,'” .$value3.”‘);”;
//echo $query; //This echo’s your query in your browser so you can view it
$res = mysql_query($query);//This runs the Query
And that is all you need to do
