mysql_query() vs mysqli_query()

+1 Rehman . · January 26, 2015
i am making login in php i wrote a code for mysql query it says :
Deprecated: mysql_query(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in C:\wamp\www\dist\core\functions\users.php on line 5
Call Stack

and when i change to  mysqli_query() it says :

Warning: mysqli_query() expects at least 2 parameters, 1 given in C:\wamp\www\dist\core\functions\users.php on line 5
Call Stack

can anybody know what i'm doing wrong ?

I think there is a better, easy  OOP way to get your results, and you wont see any error message again:

$db = new mysqli($host, $user, $passw, $database);
$query = $db->query("SELECT * FROM yourtable");
$result = $query->fetch_object();

etc. etc. etc.

Bucky made a great tutorial for this:
