Page showing blank


Well, I’m a beginner at PHP and I wanted to make a page that will show dailymotion stuff due to the adress bar and it might have parts so it will also show the parts in the mysql database, this is what I came up with but when I uploaded it EVERYTHING was blank. Does anyone know what the problem is?
Here is the code:


$urlcode = $_GET[‘url’];
$urlcode = urldecode($urlcode);
$urlname = $_GET[‘n’];
$urlname = urldecode($urlname);
$dbhost = ‘iwon’tshowyouthis’;
$dbname = ‘orthis’;
$dbusername = ‘orthis’;
$dbuserpass = ‘orthis’;

mysql_connect ($dbhost, $dbusername, $dbuserpass);
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die(‘Cannot select database’);

$result = mysql_query(“select * from $urlname order by id desc limit 5”);

<? while($r=mysql_fetch_array($result)) { //getting each variable from the table $name=$r["name"]; $code=$r["code"]; echo "".$name." "; } ?>


Most often this means you are getting some kind of an error. Problem is that some hosts setup their errors to not display. However you can manually override the .ini setting by simply adding, error_reporting(“E_ALL”); At the very top of your page…
