how can i get it to connect to my database correctly to create accounts and such?


In 99% percent of the cases, your host is localhost

$host['naam'] = localhost;

and instead of just returning some text in case of an error, die with this:

Also, the link to your website isn't working.


like wutske said:
if you change the

OR die ('Cant connect to the database');
OR die (mysql_error());
you will get more information about what's wrong with your code.


I think that this error happens because of the server name parameter, as wutske said use localhost instead.


The database server name parameter is a string that can include the port number the MySql server will use in case it is necesary. Also, you can use a path to a local socket ":/path/to/socket" for the localhost or even an IP number. So, the following ones are valid strings which you can use to specify your MySql server name:

For more information visit the mysql_connect() php function page, and if you need the exactly mysql error number use the mysql_error() function, like:


<?php$db = mysql_connect($host['naam'], $host['gebruikersnaam'], $host['wachtwoord']) OR die("Mysql Error: " . mysql_errno() . " - " . mysql_error());?>
Generally i use a function when i need to connect to any database, and instead using the die() php function i use the exit() php function when an error is generated. Here is my general database connection function:


<?phpfunction dbconn($server,$uname,$upwd,$dbname) { if(!($link=mysql_connect($server,$uname,$upwd))) { $errorText = mysql_error(); $errorNum = mysql_errno(); echo "Connection to the database server fails.<br />MySql says:<br />Error Number: $errorNum<br />Error Message: $errorText"; exit(); } if (!mysql_select_db($dbname,$link)) { $errorText = mysql_error(); $errorNum = mysql_errno(); echo "Database selection fails.<br />MySql says:<br />Error Number: " . $errorNum . "<br />Error Message: " . $errorText"; mysql_close(); exit(); } return $link;}$host['naam'] = 'CENSORED'; // my host$host['gebruikersnaam'] = 'righto'; // my database username$host['wachtwoord'] = 'CENSORED'; // my database password$host['databasenaam'] = 'odinms'; // my database name// To connect you can use this way$conn = dbconn($host['naam'],$host['gebruikersnaam'],$host['wachtwoord'],$host['databasenaam']);// or this way toodbconn($host['naam'],$host['gebruikersnaam'],$host['wachtwoord'],$host['databasenaam']);?>

Yes it is, the first url opens an ad-page so don't waste your time visiting it, only the second url is useful.Best regards,
