You could try creating another file:

Code: Select all

$mysqli_connection = new MySQLi('localhost', 'user', 'pass', 'db');
if ($mysqli_connection->connect_error) {
   echo "Not connected, error: " . $mysqli_connection->connect_error;
   echo "Connected.";
Replace 'localhost', 'user', 'pass', 'db' with your database credentials and see if that file is able to connect?
I'm struggling to resolve very similar issues as the OP. Is the above file meant to be a php script or some other file ? How do I run it ?
