How to do a PHP query and display the MYSQL database error.

While (going to college / university) { we were never urged to display the mysql_error() results for queries if any existed. Mainly because you were expected to get your queries correct every single time; this was obviously not the case. Anyway, below is short and very simple code for displaying a mysql error result if any exists after the query is executed.};


$query = "INSERT INTO user (name) VALUES ('Jabba')";
$varquery = mysql_query( $query );

if ( $varquery ){
   echo 'success';
} else {
   echo mysql_error();
