    Hello this what exactly i needed but when i run this code so it shows an PHP error
    Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in C:wampwwwtestratingdbmanager.php on line 16
    so can you update this code with new syntax of PHP MySql .. Plz

      Hi, This is not a trivial task. I encourage you to look into dbmanager.php and replace mysql driver functions with PDO or mysqli driver function in connectDB, selectDB and rest 3 too
      for example:

      $conn = mysql_connect($this->host,$this->user,$this->password);


      $conn = mysqli_connect($this->host,$this->user,$this->password);
