The reason that this didn't work is that you have to tell PHP first to create a link with your database, then execute a query and get back the results by issuing a few specific commands. Robby's example shows you how, but it's more thorougly explained in the php documentation. Have a look at http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.mysql.php and its subpages. It has examples and explanations you'll find very useful in setting up PHP to work with a MySQL database.
