So I have bought myself a PHP and flash book, only problem is that it uses php5 where I only have php4 on my server. I think I should be ok, I just need some help with the basics. Could someone tell me how to make this work on php4, I think the issue is the mysqli function. Also, if this script is on my server, should the hostname be local host?
<?php $hostname = 'localhost'; $user = 'myusername'; $pass = 'mypassword' $db = new mysqli($hostname, $user, $pass, 'phpflash'); $sql = 'SELECT * FROM wordlist'; $result = $db->query($sql); $total = $result->num_rows; echo "<h1>Total words: $total</h1>" $db->close(); ?>
