Localhost is correct/
You should add
$db = mysql_select_db(‘id227xx_xxxx’);


but why when i change the db host with my code with localhost ,is not work ?

$host = “localhost”;$user = “root”;$pass = “”;$dbname = “login”;

it’s example my code , when i change host with localhost , no working / error


Which version of php are you using?


in my account Current version: PHP 7.1


Okay, try out this code:

$link = mysqli_connect("localhost", "my_user", "my_password", "my_db");

if (!$link) {
    echo "Error: Unable to connect to MySQL." . PHP_EOL;
    echo "Debugging errno: " . mysqli_connect_errno() . PHP_EOL;
    echo "Debugging error: " . mysqli_connect_error() . PHP_EOL;

echo "Success: A proper connection to MySQL was made!" . PHP_EOL;
echo "Host information: " . mysqli_get_host_info($link) . PHP_EOL;


Replace my_user, my_password and my_db with the correct information.


oke thank’s It is resolved ,
