Hello, I'm a total newb to PHP and am just clueless here. I'm just trying to show all the data in a table but i'm getting some errors with my current code i'm getting "No Database Selected" and before a warning saying that something was wrong with my while statement.

How should this been written properly?

<?php
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'oakshion_user', '*****', 'oakshion_firedata')
	or die("Unable to connect to MySQL");
	
$sql = "SELECT * FROM `firechips_DKP`";

$resault = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());

<?php

	or die("Unable to select database");
	
$table = "firechips_DKP";
$sql = "SELECT * FROM {$table}"
	or die("Query to show fields from table failed");

$resault = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());

Too many errors.
1.

$sql = "SELECT * FROM {$table}"
or die("Query to show fields from table failed");

Thats wrong.

$sql = "SELECT * FROM $table";
$result = mysql_query($sql) or die (mysql_error());

is the right way.
2. You have a typo on line 12. It should be $result.
Btw, You don't have to use { } for your variables.

Your Code

$table = "firechips_DKP";

$sql = "SELECT * FROM {$table}"

or die("Query to show fields from table failed");

$sql = "SELECT * from $table";
$result = mysql_Query($sql) or die('Query error : '.' '.mysql_error());

don't use die with query..!! and don't curly brackets for variable in Query..!! I hope you got my point..!!

and why you echo everytime with html tags..!! u can use html tages outside the php tag...

for example:

<?php
mysql_connect('localhost', 'oakshion_user', 'kikiki123^')

or die("Unable to connect to MySQL");

mysql_select_db('oakshion_firedata')

or die("Unable to select database");

$table = "firechips_DKP";

$sql = "SELECT * FROM $table";

$resault = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
 
?>  <!-- close php code and start html code directly
-->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="themes/FireChips/style/style.css" >

<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="000000">"

<td>

<div class="border" bgcolor="000000" style="width: 100%;margin: 0 auto;">

 <div class="im1">

 <div class="im2">

</td>
<tr>
     <td>Firstname</td>
       <td>Lastname</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<!-- now you want to fetch your data from database and for that you need php then again start php code -->

<?while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) 
 
{     ?>
<td><? echo $row['firstname']?></td>
<td><? echo $row['lastname']?></td>

<? } ?>

</tr>

i hope this will simplify your work... and i think you understand what i want to say..!! :)
