Sorry mate, you're not making much sense. What exactly is the problem. What errors do you get? Have you tried accessing the DB with a very simple query?

how to do it?
can u just give me some simple codes and where should i save my php files?

You can put your files anywhere in your local server as long they have acces to the connection string:

mysql_connect("localhost","admin","charmander") or die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("sycom_dbase") or die('Error: ' . mysql_error());

As a rule, you'd create a connection include file:

/includes/db.inc.php

You'd place this code into the file and then include this file in all your db-using "normal php files". A simple way to do this would be:

e.g. for files in your document root:

include("includes/db.inc.php");

then carry on creating your querystring and query the database.

other solutions sir.. after i included your suggestions it doesn't execute the test php file and the database..

i use phpmyadmin and created a database... if theres anything i configure first?

Can you get a php file to show in your browser at all? Without any MySQL I mean. Just something easy like:

echo "Hello World!";
