Hello, I am currently having problems with databases in mysql. As of now, I have a basic script in which the user will input data into 7 text field, and hit the submit button. My real problem is that for some reason I am unable to access my database through php. I have it set up like so: PHP: $username="*******";$password="********";$database="*********";$first=$_POST['first'];$last=$_POST['last'];$phone=$_POST['phone'];$mobile=$_POST['mobile'];$fax=$_POST['fax'];$email=$_POST['email'];$web=$_POST['web'];mysql_connect(localhost,$username,$password);@mysql_select_db($database) or die( "Unable to select database"); I have the <? and the ?>, so this isn't the problem, this is a small chunk. When I run the script on my page though, it returns "Unable to select database". Why? Am I doing something wrong? What can I do to fix this problem? I am very new to scripting, so the problem is probably something basic. Anyone know what is wrong?
