I thought I'd throw in my own beginners version of a PHP/mySQL prog.
As you state that your a php beginner I thought that you may not be
aware that php can be interspersed within html. Your example could
have been written thus;
<BODY><H1 align=center>Listing of houses</H1>
<!-- more content, i.e html that's "fixed" -->
$user = "username_with_access_to_the_DB/Table";
$pass = "users_password";
// more php
printf("Some php variable from above equals:$result\n");
I'm not claiming this to be any more "right" than the way you've
written it but you might find this a very useful feature of php. (I've
heard that there is a perl interpreter that allows perl to be
"embedded" within html now too).
Yes I was aware of this.
My choice of method was largely due to my php inexperience.
I see now though that in some circumstances it may be more appropriate
to use an html file with embedded PHP.
Thanks for bringing that to my attention Peter.
