Create XML through php and mysql

Here I am giving you the very basic sample code for creating the XML file through PHP and MYsql


// We'll be outputting a PDF
header('Content-type: text/xml');

echo "”

$db_name = “testDB”;
$connection = mysql_connect(“”, “username”, “password”) or die(“Could not connect.”);
$table_name = ‘user’;

$query = “select * from ” . $table_name;

$result = mysql_query($query, $connection) or die(“Could not complete database query”);
$num = mysql_num_rows($result);

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
echo “”. $row[‘firstname’].””;
echo “”. $row[‘lastname’].””;
echo “

“. $row[‘address’].”

echo “”. $row[‘age’].””;
