I'm trying to learn some MySQL4.0.20a-nt + PHP5 and when the mysql_connect function is called, it hangs / stalls and nothing else after the statement call works. I can do echo "This is a string."; and it'll print that out just fine (but only before the mysql_connect call). I know the host / user / password are correct and I know I can connect to MySQL on DOS prompt and with MySQL Administrator. Maybe I installed PHP incorrectly? I know "echo" works and including other files works so I must have done something write with the installation of PHP. Any suggestions on what the problem might be?
Also, I'm just learning still. I don't know much about MySQL or PHP and I'd like to learn some more so don't slam me for something I have not caught yet that most PHP / MySQL'ers catch easily. Thanks.
