    Changing Mysqli to PDO connect

    I have been reading and have been told that prepared statements are one way to prevent SQL injections.

    My mysqli conect works, but my new PDO statement doesn't connect

    $username = "root";
    $password = "1212";
    try {
    $conn = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=test', $username, $password);
    } catch(PDOException $e) {
    echo 'ERROR: ' . $e->getMessage();

    Can you tell me why this doesn't work?

    Thanks in advance friends

    Before you go too far, please be aware that the MySQLi extension supports prepared statements with bound parameters, too.

    Anyway, it would help to know exactly what error message you are getting.
