Updating mysql to mysqli

Hello Ray
I am having a problem updating a thank you page.
I am attaching the code.
Can you see where I am wrong please?
The error messages are as follows
Warning: mysqli_select_db() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli, string given in C:\xampp\htdocs\boatsforsalenow_mysqli\Enquiries\thank_you.php on line 34

Warning: mysqli_query() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli, string given in C:\xampp\htdocs\boatsforsalenow_mysqli\Enquiries\thank_you.php on line 36

Warning: mysqli_error() expects exactly 1 parameter, 0 given in C:\xampp\htdocs\boatsforsalenow_mysqli\Enquiries\thank_you.php on line 36
Many thanks
John

You can't simply manually update mysql_ to mysqli_ on a page and update to mysqli.

You will need to redo the page and connection to use the correct mysqli syntax. Data Bridge v2 has a update utility that will help you do this. You could also re-create the page manually with MySQLi Server Behaviors. You should not attempt to do the update by hand if you aren't familiar with writing php and mysqli.
