Select Some Data From MySQL Using PHP

  • submit to reddit
        This snippet basically will select some data from a MySQL table using PHP. A friend sent me a request to pull from PHPBB's tables, so this script was born.

	$UserName = "@@@@@";
	$PassWord = "$$$$$";
	$DataBase = "%%%%%";
	$HostName = "localhost"; // Unless your host is remote, use localhost.

	$MySQLConnection = mysql_connect($HostName, $UserName, $PassWord) or die("Unable to connect to MySQL Database!!");

	$MySQLSelectedDB = mysql_select_db($DataBase, $MySQLConnection) or die("Could not Set the Database!!");

	$MySQLRecordSet = mysql_query("SELECT TOP 5 field_1, field_2 FROM some_phpbb_table");

	while ($MyRow = mysql_fetch_array($MySQLRecordSet, MYSQL_ASSOC)) {
		print "First Field: " . $MyRow{'field_1'} . " Second Field: " . $MyRow{'field_2'} . "<br>";
