help with mysql database retrieval from php script pls
am a new PHP and MYSQL developer and i am using your book which has been of tremendous help so far especially your examples. However, i am having problems with getting data out of my MYSQL database especially when i want to count the number of affected rows the select statement affects. i get this error and cant seem to get around it for a couple of days now
e.g mysql_affected_rows(): supplied arguement is not a valid MYSQL result resource
i also get the same error with mysql_fetch_array, mysql_num_rows and this kinda functions. pls i need your help.
connection from PHP to mysql db is working well though.
