PHP and MySQL are both free software, and they work together well for making database-backed websites.

Methods for PHP to access MySQL databases all begin with the mysql_ prefix.

The convention is to store a query statement in a variable like $query or $sql.

$query = "select * from employee";

Results by convention are returned to a varible like $result.

$result = mysql_query($query);
