How to create a dynamic Carousel using PHP and Bootstrap?

I’m still really bad with logic and back-end development in general.

I’ve been working on developing a CMS blog and now I’m trying to create a slideshow on the homepage with dynamic content (images + text). The main goal is to use that to announce updates.

Is there a way to make the Carousel dynamic, fetching the MySQL data with this code I made?

I’m using table ‘posts’ because I’m still just testing. Once it works as I want, I’ll create another table called ‘slides’ on MySQL, in which all the data for this purpose will be stored.

*The DB connection is already on the includes. The connection was written on a small file called DB.php


          <div id="carouselExampleIndicators" class="carousel slide" data-ride="carousel">
                  <ol class="carousel-indicators">
                    <li data-target="#carouselExampleIndicators" data-slide-to="0" class="active"></li>
                    <li data-target="#carouselExampleIndicators" data-slide-to="1"></li>
                    <li data-target="#carouselExampleIndicators" data-slide-to="2"></li>
                  <div class="carousel-inner" role="listbox">
              // The default SQL query
                  $sql = "SELECT * FROM posts ORDER BY id desc";
                  $stmt = $ConnectingDB->query($sql);
                    while ($DataRows = $stmt->fetch()) {
                      $Id = $DataRows["id"];
                      $PostTitle = $DataRows["title"];
                      $Image = $DataRows["image"];
                      $PostText = $DataRo    ws["post"];
                        <!-- Slide -->
