Default php connect to mySql

Hi I'am new to this
Can not connect php to mySql
running windows xp professional
installed apache, Php and MySql
Completed chapter 2 OK
MySql works from command line and have created a test data base OK
Trying createmovie.php page 95 chapter 3
Nothing happens only blank screen, code correct as I have now copied it from web site
I have been trying for 2 weeks. I think it is a problem with the config of PHP/MySql as its not to clear in the book. It referes to my.cnf should this be my.ini ?
many thanks

Hi Manu Sharma
many thanks for your reply
have tried everything you suggest still wont work
this works fine
If I try chapter 3 createmovie.php I get nothing only blank page.
with the wrong password I should get check your serve connection.

Do You think I should re-install PHP & MySql again and if so in which order?
PHP must be working but not connecting to MySql.
MySql works as command line.
many thanks

I have reInstalled PHP. Chapter 3 createmovie.php starts to run but I get the following fatal error

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_create_db() in C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\createmovie.php on line 8

I think I still have an installation problem as its not findinging the functions.

many thanks
