 PHP and MySQLi quick tutorial / how to example

Here is a quick tutorial to get  you up in running with mysqli

<?php


// CONNECT TO THE DATABASE
$DB_NAME = 'DATABASE_NAME';
$DB_HOST = 'DATABASE_HOST';
$DB_USER = 'DATABASE_USER';
$DB_PASS = 'DATABASE_PASSWORD';
$mysqli = new mysqli($DB_HOST, $DB_USER, $DB_PASS, $DB_NAME);
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
printf("Connect failed: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());
exit();
}

// A QUICK QUERY ON A FAKE USER TABLE
$query = "SELECT * FROM `users` WHERE `status`='bonkers'";
$result = $mysqli->query($query) or die($mysqli->error.__LINE__);

// GOING THROUGH THE DATA
if($result->num_rows > 0) {
while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) {
echo stripslashes($row['username']);
}
}
else {
echo 'NO RESULTS';
}
// CLOSE CONNECTION
mysqli_close($mysqli);

?>

This will work for 90% of your querying needs.
