PHP-DB - Php not recognizing mysqli_connect
I'm having a frustrating time trying to find out why php is not connecting to MySQL. Here's what I did;
* installed Apache Web server on a laptop. This is up and running.
* Installed php on the laptop and this is running and configured to Apache. I can bring up a dev website running php.
* installed MySQL database and created tables.
Now I'm trying to connect php to the database and php does not seem to be recognizing mysqli_connect.
I have the following within a php file.
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'password');
If I view the source code after the page comes up it seems as if the webpage hits this piece of code and stops creating the rest of the page.
You help is appreciated.
