I recently got the Build Your Own Database Driven Website with PHP and MySQL. I read all the installation instructions, installed PHP 5.0 on windows XP pro. MySQL 4.0 aswell.
I wrote a load of code, but it either returns a blank page when I put: @$dbcnx = @mysql_connect
or it says:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in c:\program files\apache group\Apache\htdocs\php\jokelist.php on line 9
when I take out the '@'.
What should I do, should I change config settings? whats wrong? HELP!
Thanks for your time,
