  2. Now, let us understand the codes. First here we create opening and closing tags of php that are <?php ?>. Where <?php is opening tag of php and ?> is closing tag. All the contents of php are always written inside these tags.
  3. After this inside php tags, we create a variable named connect and make a connection with database. $connect=mysqli_connect("localhost","root","","as1") or die(" Connection Failed");
  4. Here, we use inline query of php than is mysqli_connect to make a connection with database. Under this first we use server name, then user name, then password used and at last database name.
  5. If due to some issue we are not able to make a connection then die will execute and connection failed displayed on browser screen.
  6. Whereas in next step we use $query, this is used here to insert data into database or table to show you that connection is established between html and database. Inside this, students is the table name that we create under database as1, which is already discussed.
  7. And after this name, marks are columns of table students, whereas john, 65 are values which we want to insert in table.
  8. At last we create if and use mysqli_query under this with values $connect, $query. This is, if we want to enter some data in database through html.
  9. Here, if everything is right then “WE INSERT YOUR RECORD SUCCESSFULLY” this line goes printed. If not then else part will be executed. We hope that you understand the article properly.
