Database Connection Using Php

$connection = mysqli_connect(“database-hostname”,”database-username”,”database-password”,”database name”);

if (!$connection) {
die(‘Connection Error: ‘ . mysqli_connect_error());

For example if you are running the program on your local machine then hostname =”localhost’ ,username =”root” and password =”” .
