One of the defining features of PHP is the versatility it offers for connection to, and manipulation with, databases. In this article, we look at some features of the PHP and MySQL combination. We shall go through the following steps:- 
•	Connect to MySQL Database Server 
•	Create new Database 
•	Select MySQL Database 
•	Add data to table 
•	Retrieve data 
•	Error Handling 
Connect to MySQL Database Server 
To work with the MySQL database, we first need to connect to MySQL Database Server. PHP provides mysql_connect() function to do this, and requires three strings as input: ‘hostname’, ‘username’ and ‘password’. Use Code-1 to connect to MySQL Database Server.
