MySQL Question

The mysqli_connect not working

I installed apache, php and mysql. Now when I execute the php code, the

mysqli_connect()
is not working, neither it's showing the message in die.

$dbc=mysqli_connect(' ', ' ', ' ', ' ') or die('not connecting');


Now someone tell me what database username shall I pass to
mysqli_connect
and what password. I don't remember I was asked for any username or password
and why isn't the message in
die()
showing up?

My
var_dump(function_exists('mysqli_connect'));
outputs bool(false).. if it has anything to do with it, how do I correct it.?

Answer

Looks like MySQLi extension is not installed. What does var_dump(function_exists('mysqli_connect')); output?
