IIRC the default password is blank (no password), so just hit enter.

You need to create and select a database first.

Once you have wamp server up and running, go to this URL "localhost/phpmyadmin" then Create a Database. Then inside the Database you created, You can create as many tables as you want.

if you still have any problems, just post them and we will try helping you.

" databbase of emp is succesfully created thanks for creating
error "

please help me

You need to be a bit precise with the number of rows when querying a DB.
Try this code... I hope this solves your problem beautifully...

$sql="insert into emp1 values('abc','1c1',2004)";
if(mysql_query("$sql"))
{
      echo "1 record added";
}else{
      die("error ".mysql_error());
}

$ret=mysql_query("select * from emp1");

while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($ret) >= 1)
{
echo $rows['ename']. " ".$rows['eno'];
echo "<br>";
}

thanks for the reply
the records are getting inserted into the table but i am facing a small problem with retireval..
the while loop is being executed but the values in the fields are not being printed...
see this code

<?php
  
  $con=mysql_connect("localhost","root","") or die("well please check ");
  if(mysql_query("create DATABASE hello"))
   {
       echo  "database created successfully";
   }
   mysql_select_db("hello");
   
    
   
   $sql="insert into empl values('abcdd','1c1',2004)";
if(mysql_query("$sql"))
{
      echo "1 record added";
}else{
      die("error ".mysql_error());
}

$ret=mysql_query("select * from empl");
echo "congrats";
while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($ret) >= 1)
{
echo $rows['ename']. " ".$rows['eno'];
echo "<br>";
}
   echo "haii";
      mysql_close($con);
 ?>

and the output is as the attached pic

while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($ret) >= 1)

this statement is not allowing the echo in while to print the values

i tried while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($ret) ) and it worked
what is the reason?
isnt that while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($ret) >= 1) correct?

mysql_fetch_array return a resource or false, and not a row count.

mysql_fetch_array returns the rows or false if there are no rows..
is it that?

Try using print_r($rows. " ".$rows); if this isn't working then give this a go...


while(mysql_affected_rows($ret)>=1){
DO SOMETHING;
}

Try using print_r($rows. " ".$rows);

this is working but its displaying only the first record in the table
and coming to this

while(mysql_affected_rows($ret)>=1){
DO SOMETHING;


its an error
the function should return a resource and we are comparing the resource with a numeric value which may not be appropriate..

can anyone help me in creating a generic page to all my web pages in some site i am trying to do.....
i want some means to have a page that works almost similar to that of master page in .net

thanks in advance

I prefer to use Smarty for that (a template engine), although there are several more (RainTPL for example).
