Call to 'mysqli_connect()' Kills PHP Procedure

I have the following code in a PHP procedure:
echo "<p>host_name:  $host_name</p>";
echo "<p>userid:  $userid</p>";
echo "<p>password:  $password</p>";
$connect = mysqli_connect("$host_name", "$userid", "$password"winking smiley;
echo "<p>connect_TEMP:  $connect</p>";

The first three 'echo' lines disp oklay as expected; the fourth 'echo' line does not display.

No error message is displayed from the call to 'mysqli_connect()'.

Why does the call to 'mysqli_connect() seemingly kill the PHP procedure?

Hi
This is not a PHP teaching site I am afraid. We just try and support WAMPServer itself

However, the result of a mysqli_connect is not a scalar variable that you can simply echo.
Check the PHP manual for more details.

Welcome Miles,

You are more than welcome to help out on this site if you want, however please dont suggest PHP code to others that has been deprecated for many years and in this case was removed from the language as of PHP7.0 a version of PHP that itself is no longer supprted.

Also the code shown by the other person was obviously using the mysqli database extension anyway.
