Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF in view.php on line 27

I really dont see any problem in my code, why this is happening, please help. Im a beginner in PHP

Where my LINE 21 is >> if(isset($_GET['page']) && is_numeric($_GET['page']))

if ($result = $mysqli->query("SELECT * FROM players ORDER BY id"))
{
if ($result->num_rows > 0)
{
$total_result = $result->num_rows;
$total_pages = ceil($total_result / $per_page)

if(isset($_GET['page']) && is_numeric($_GET['page']))
{
$show_page = $_GET['page'];

if ($show_page > 0 && $show_page <= $total_pages)
{
$start = ($show_page - 1) * $per_page;
$end = $start + $per_page;
}

}

}

}

}
echo "</p>";

}
else

echo "No result to display.";

echo "Error: " . $mysqli->error;
}

Answer

PHP parser errors take some getting used to; if it complains about an unexpected 'something' at line X, look at line X-1 first. In this case it will not tell you that you forgot a semi-colon at the end of the previous line , instead it will complain about the if that comes next.

You'll get used to it :)
