error: Database not selected

I'm stuck with this issue: No database selected. I roll over the same problems posted here, but after hours of reading I can't figure out why the database is not selected. I created a database

and a table
. I run the script with WAMP server. Sorry about the "everyday question." Please help!


// load Smarty library

$servername = "localhost";
$dbname = "job";

// Create connection
$conn = mysqli_connect($servername, $dbname);

// Check connection
if (!$conn) {
die("Connection failed: " . mysqli_connect_error());

$smarty = new Smarty;


$rows = array();
$sql = "SELECT * FROM job";
$result = mysqli_query($conn, $sql);

if (!$result) {
echo 'MySQL Error: ' . mysqli_error($conn);

while ($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result)) {
$rows[] = $row;

$smarty->assign('output', $rows);

Those aren't the right parameters to mysqli_connect. You have to pass host, username, password, and then database name. You are passing only the host and the database name, so you are not connecting correctly.
