Insert Query through PHP does not insert data into MySQL Table

P: 3
I am using the following code. Why it does not insert record in the MySQL Table through php script:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?php
  2. $dbhost='localhost';
  3. $dbuser='root';
  4. $dbpass='newpass';
  5. $mysqldb='mysql';
  7. if(isset($_POST['add'])){
  9. $username=$_POST['username']; // echo test for $username is OK
  10. $password=$_POST['password']; // echo test for $password is OK
  12. $conn=mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass) or die ('Error connecting MySQL'); mysql_select_db($mysqldb) or die ('Error connecting database');
  14. $query = "INSERT INTO user (host, user, password, select_priv, insert_priv, update_priv) VALUES ('localhost', '$username', PASSWORD ('password'), 'Y', 'Y', 'Y')";
  16. //more code to close database and html form
  17. ?>
Plz help me regarding this.

Heya, Servo.

You need to execute your query using mysql_query().

Please use CODE tags when posting source code:
