Hi! I was making my websites register page and my connect.php file is not working, and I can't select the database. Here is the code. Thank you for help!

Code: Select all

$conn = mysqli_connect(example-database);

if(!$conn) {
	die('Could not connect'.mysqli_error() );

$db_selected = mysqli_select_db("example-database");
if(!$db_selected) {
	die( 'Could not select database' .mysqli_error() );
Thank you,
Attila J.

You haven't got enough parameters. What made you think this would work?

You'd be better off learning PDO rather than mysqli as it was only intended to be used as a transitional interface. PDO imo is easier to understand and learn.
