I want to fetch data from a mysql table using php. Please, can anyone tell me? What is wrong with this code? What is the correct code to fetch data from a mysql database:

 <?php
    $dbhost = 'localhost';
    $dbuser = 'root';
    $dbpass = '';
    $connect=mysql_connect("localhost","root","");

    // connect to databsase 

    mysql_select_db("form1",);

        enter code here

    // query the database 

    $query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE name = 'Admin' ");

    // fetch the result / convert resulte in to array 

    WHILE ($rows = mysql_fetch_array($query)):

       $rows = $rows['Name'];
       $address = $rows['Address'];
       $email = $rows['Email'];
       $subject = $rows['Subject'];
       $comment = $rows['Comment']

       echo "$Name<br>$Address<br>$Email<br>$Subject<br>$Comment<br><br>";

       endwhile;

       ?>


Variables in php are case sensitive. Please replace your while loop with following:

while ($rows = mysql_fetch_array($query)):

           $name = $rows['Name'];
           $address = $rows['Address'];
           $email = $rows['Email'];
           $subject = $rows['Subject'];
           $comment = $rows['Comment']

           echo "$name<br>$address<br>$email<br>$subject<br>$comment<br><br>";

           endwhile;
