To Larry or some one else that can help me to resolve this error message: I am using XAMPP panel to test the PHP files for this book. However, I try to run script 9.2 and got this error message: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'DEFINE' (T_STRING) in C:\xampp\htdocs\mysqli_connect.php on line 5 Here is the code that I used: <?php #Script 9.2 mysqli_connect.php //Set the database access information as constants: DEFINE ('DB_USER', 'root'); DEFINE ('DB_PASSWORD', 'mypass1'); DEFINE ('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); DEFINE ('DB_NAME', 'sitename'); //Make the connection: $dbc = @mysqli_connect(DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD, DB_NAME) OR die ('Could not connect to MySQL: ' . mysql_connect_error()); //Set the encoding: mysqli_set_charset($dbc, 'utf8'); ?> I also tried to use these authentication for mysqli_test.php script , and they just worked fine.
