PHP is a major language used in creating websites. And it uses the MySQL connectivity. MySQL is an open source database, which allows multi users to perform multiple actions. An advantage of building a website on a database is that you can run search queries on the database which would not be possible in case of html written website.

Here is a simple code of PHP with MySQL database.

MySQL connectivity in PHP is quite straightforward. You need to connect to the MySQL at first. Then you need to choose the database. Then,you will have to mention the query and finally you need to fetch the data from the query. There is one more step as you need to close the connection finally. This seems to be quite similar to database connectivity in any other database software. However, in this case you need a simple connection string. You need to use following code:


$username= "user_name";



$dbHandle=myql_connect($hostname,$username,$password); … ?>

You can add any message for connection failure and success.

For selecting database you need to use mysql_select_db. You can compose query using mysql_query. You can fetch the data from query using mysql_fetch_array. You can close the database connection using mysql_close. This is the fundamental aspect. Now you can read a lot and do wonders using MySQL and PHP.
