Hi,

You can do it with where condition in your mysql query like:

"select * from tablename where category='PHP'";

Try this one...

I know but i would like to count rows containing only php

$query = "select count(*) from tablename where category='PHP'";

here i must use
mysql_num_rows or mysql_fetch_row

$var = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM table WHERE category = 'PHP'");
$rows = mysql_num_rows($var);

- the variable $rows should give you the number of rows where category = 'PHP'.
