    I'm new to webmin, and I'm trying to configure my database settings so that it works. I was using mySQL previously, and now I have to import my sql statements onto webmin. However, I have no idea what other configurations are needed in order for my 'mysql_connect' to work.

    I've created a new user.
    user: dct_db_user
    host: localhost
    password: <empty>

    so in my file manager, i tried with a test file

    <?php
    $username="dct_db_user";
    $password="";
    echo '1';
    $dbc = mysql_connect ('localhost', '$username', '$password');
    echo '2';
    if ($dbc){
    echo "Connection to Server opened";
    }
    else{
    echo "There's no connection to server";
    }

    ?>

    so far it's only echoing '1', but gets stuck at mysql_connect. What else do I need to configure in order to get this working?
