I'm quite new to working with PHP and databases. So, like all beginners, I'm having problems with the mysqli extension. I was trying to avoid using mysqli_results, as I didn't want to deal with an array and a loop every time I want a simple piece of data. But that might not be possible.
I need to echo
$user_count, but nothing seems to be stored there. My code seems to be okay according to the API, but maybe I'm just trying to use the wrong functions altogether. How do I put the result I need into
mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT * FROM `wp_users` WHERE 1"); $result_user_count = mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT COUNT(`ID`) FROM `wp_users`"); $user_count = mysqli_fetch_field_direct($result_user_count, 0); echo $user_count . ' users found on ' . $dbname . ':</br>';
