  1. Sorry about the confusion. I'm wanting to use the mysqli_oop_connect.php file for my DB connection instead of the way it tells me in 16.4. which is -----> $mysqli = new MySQLi('localhost', 'username', 'password', 'forum'); I'm not sure how to do it or if it is possible.
  2. In the 13.6 & 16.4 scripts it requires a DB connection using 13.6---> $dbc = mysqli_connect ('localhost', 'username', 'password', 'forum'); 16.4---> $mysqli = new MySQLi('localhost', 'username', 'password', 'forum'); is there any way i could make it use the mysqli_oop_connect.php instead? I'm in school and i dont like having my DB username & password on my screen like that where anybody could see it.
  3. I figured the problem i was having out.. i had to read the 13.3 again to see it. i had to enable the fileinfo.dll in the php.ini file. Everything works fine now. thanks for the help
  4. I cant get the uploader to work. I get the same error with my file or the downloadable file.
