I have been trying to learn php development by installing xampp on my pc. The problem i am having is that i am able to save my php scripts and run them successfully but when i started trying to write programs that have to connect to the mysql database it started giving me all kinds of errors.
So my guess is that i am not being able to connect to the mysql db even though phpmyadmin seems to be connecting to it. I tried reading all these php forum tips on pinging mysql, etc but i dont seem to be making any clear headway.
Can anyone please HELP me by giving me some good tips on pinging and troubleshooting my problem. Please find below a list of my environment info ;
OS: Win XP
Computer type: laptop
Distribution: XAMPP
System firewall: Default windows firewall
Internet Security: AOL Active Shield
Whatever feels, lives; whatever lives, depends on nourishment; whatever lives and depends on nourishment grows; whatever is of this nature is in the end resolved into its basic principles; whatever comes to be resolved into its basic principles is a complex; every complex has its constituent parts; whatever this is true of is a divisible body. If therefore the human mind feels, it follows that it is a divisible body. 
(On the Απαθεια of the Human Mind 2.1)
