    just installed apache and php on a win95 machine.
    and now i'm trying to configure mysql but i'm
    quit stuck in here.

    i'm using
    as reference.

    php3 script :
    <head><title>test db</title>
    $sql = new MySQL_class;

    echo("Database connection successful.n");

    util.php3 would be to long to past but if nessecary
    it's at this link :
    it used as user jo and as password joa.

    apache and the mysqld deamon is running.

    php3.ini has been adapted as following :

    ;Windows Extensions

    mysql.default_port = ;
    mysql.default_host =;
    mysql.default_user =jo;
    mysql.default_password =joa;

    now running testdb.php3 keeps giving me
    Error: Unable to connect to MySQL server: : '' :


    mysql -u root
    i've added a superuser like this:

    do_command: query: INSERT INTO user VALUES ('%', 'jo',
    password('joa'), 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y')
    mysqladmin reload -uroot

    then : mysql -ujo -pjoa
    ok logged in

    and typed in the rest of the tutorial.

    btw : logging in as root and doing
    a query like select * from user outputs
    what it should.

    If anyone has any idea where my config problem should locate I would love to hear it.

    Greetings Joachim

    I would try accessing the database like this:

    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica">code:</font><HR><pre>
    mysql_connect("","user","pass") or die("Connection failed.");
    echo "Connection successful.";

    If that works then it is probably a problem with the database class in util.php3.

    Does PHP return an error message when you try to connect to MySQL?
