 From a php-general thread earlier:

  $db=new mysqli('localhost','whil','secret','test');


  Fatal error: Call to undefined function new mysqli() in index.php on

  $conn = mysqli_connect("localhost","whil","secret","test");
  echo 'conn good: '.$conn.' :very good indeed<br>';

generates success:

  conn good: Object id #1 :very good indeed

The book I'm working with (PHP & MySQL Web Dev, Welling/Thompson) specifically defines the 'new mysqli' syntax. So I'm guessing I don't have something configured right?

If one works the other should too. Your code here looks fine according to the manual ( - can you send us exactly what you have?
