Report Script 9.2 How To Connect Mysql Using Php in PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites: Visual QuickPro Guide (4th Edition) Posted December 27, 2016 · Edited December 27, 2016 by amateurgeek Thanks for your reply Larry. I can fix the parse-error now. But another problem arise like this when I set the utf8 encoding for MySQL: Warning: mysqli_set_charset() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli, resource given in C:\xampp\htdocs\mysqli_connect.php on line 13 Line 13 in my Notepad++ is like this: mysqli_set_charset($dbc, 'utf8'); Another question I'd like to ask you or someone else if there is any way I can capture the screenshot and paste it directly into this post. I tried to use several Web browsers and even enable some security settings of Internet Explorer to allow a website to access the clipboard, but those tricks don't work for me. Hope somebody can tell me what to do with the paste feature in this forum so that it will be easier for me to explain my PHP errors by using the screenshot. Thanks again for your time to view my post.
