you donít connect via http. hence mysql_connect("localhost","root","root");. but I recommend to use PDO or MySQLi instead of the outdated mysql_* functions.

PS. you donít connect via the root account either, because anyone who applies SQL Injections is able to delete your database or perform other unwanted adminstrative tasks. therefore connectioīng through a standard user account which only has select/insert/update permissions is more secure.
