SQL Query/echo not working

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

Hey all,

I'm trying to run (what I thought) was a simple operation and it isn't working. I haven't coded anything in about 2 years, and I'm self taught at that so I know I've got quite a few gaps in my knowledge base.

Here's what is running right now:

Code: <?php

$con = mysql_connect("localhost","adminaccount","adminpassword");
if (!$con)
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

mysql_select_db("mornin14_idiot2009", $con);

$id = $_GET['id'];

$query = "SELECT * FROM idiot WHERE index = '15'"; //I want this to say WHERE index = $id, but I'm testing this with just a #
$result = mysql_query($query);

$numrows = mysql_num_rows($result);

for ($x=0; $x<$numrows; $x++){
$result_row = mysql_fetch_row($result);
echo $result_row[0];
echo "<br />";
echo $result_row[1];
echo "<br />";
echo $result_row[3];
echo "<br />";
echo $result_row[5];
echo "<br />";



Now it should only be returning one row since I'm checking for a specific index #.

When I just do a basic select * from idiot and omit the where clause, it works fine and dumps the whole table in the for loop. But if I try a specific where, it falls apart. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
