I'm new to PHP, but not to computer programming. I'm trying to connect to ny MySQL database and thought I followed what the tutorial said exactly. Obviously not.

I realize that this is an error indicating a missing control character, but I have no clue as to what it would be.

Here's the statement that fails:

$dbc = mysql_connect('localhost','kotw_wdps1','D0Qy6DUuOnhZ5m9R') or die('Not connected : ' . mysql_error());

I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me why this has an error in it.

Best regards,
