Error connecting to database

Thanks again for the help getting WAMP running. I wrote a PHP script for to insert data into into Mariadb, and unfortunately it is not connecting. I have a an if statement in my code using mysqli_connect_errno() to check for errors, and when I run the script, mysqli_connect_errno() triggers the if statement and yields the value 2002. Here is the full script of the file:


// Extract HTML variable values
$fName = $_POST['fName'];
$lName = $_POST['lName'];
$address = $_POST['address'];
$city = $_POST['city'];
$state = $_POST['state'];
$zip = $_POST['zip'];
$ccnumber = $_POST['ccnumber'];
$cardtype = $_POST['cardtype'];
$expmonth = $_POST['expmonth'];
$expyear = $_POST['expyear'];
$sc = $_POST['sc'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$phonenumber = $_POST['phonenumber'];
$username= $_POST['username'];
$pwd1 = $_POST['pwd1'];
$pwd2 = $_POST['pwd2'];

// Verify passwords
if ($pwd1 != $pwd2)
echo "<h1>The passwords did not match. Please <a href=\"createaccount.htm\">try again.</a></h1>";

// Connect to database
@ $db = new mysqli('localhost', 'user', 'password', 'database');
$error = mysqli_connect_errno();

if ($error)
echo 'Error '.$error.'. Could not connect to database. Please try again later.';

// Insert values into database
$query = "INSERT INTO ebazaar VALUES ('".$fName."', '".$lName."', '".$address."', '".$city."', '".$state."', '".$zip."', '".$ccnumber."',
'".$cardtype."', '".$expmonth."', '".$expyear."', '".$sc."', '".$email."', '".$phonenumber."', '".$username."', '".$pwd1."', '".$pwd2."')";
$result= $db->query($query);

// Output results to user
if ($result)
echo "Congratulations. Account created!";
echo "An error has occurred. The account was not created.";



Any solutions?

RTFM. Once again, ALWAYS read the documentation!
Look at how to handle errors and display the error text and not just the error number.
That will be the only answer on this subject.
Although the links on the documentation are in RiggsFolly's and mine signatures and in Wampmanager's Documentation menu items, I'm kind enough to put the right link below, but it's really starting to annoy me.
