Hi,

Im starting to convert my existing PHP scripts to the mysqli library.

Could someone please have a look at the PHP code below and suggest how to migrate it to use the new mysqli library.

Thank you.

<?php
if(isset($_POST['add']))
{
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpass = 'letmein';
$conn = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass);
if(! $conn )
{
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}

if(! get_magic_quotes_gpc() )

$emp_salary = $_POST['emp_salary'];

$sql = "INSERT INTO employee ".
