PHP MySQL: Making connection to DB non OOP procecural style

This entry is part 3 of 17 in the series PHP & MySQL

The earlier example was done using object oriented style of coding.

We can use the procedural method as shown below.

In Non OOP procedural method, we use mysql_connect.

$link = mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "", "allartist");

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    printf("Connect failed: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());
} else {
    printf("Connection to DB successful");

It is recommended to use the newer OOP way of coding.
