Default Lesson21 on Page 287


I need help of adding MySQL tables to the database by creating table in PHP. For some reason, I got a message said that "Unable to create table". My codes were exactly the same as the example on page 287 in Lesson 21. I double checked the bold texts where $query= "CREATE TABLE ......" to make sure I didn't miss anything or use the wrong quotes. Everything was the same but I was unable to create the table in the database. Would you help me to find out what is the problem?

Default creating table

If the code is identical, then I would check the authorizations. If that's not it then I would check the code again. Do you have a program to check the code for you rather than relying on your eyes? I once searched for a bug for hours that turned out to be an extraneous space.

The most common problem for beginners is using single quotes instead of back ticks around table or field/column names.
