MySQLi connection on die redirect to website

Hi there, how would I modify the connection script so that on a connect error it redirects to a website, I've tried the script below but it's not working, any help would be much appreciated, thanks.


<?php
# FileName="WADYN_MYSQLI_CONN.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_securex = "localhost";
$database_securex = "database";
$username_securex = "account";
$password_securex = "password";
@session_start();

$securex = mysqli_init();
if (defined("MYSQLI_OPT_INT_AND_FLOAT_NATIVE")) $securex->options(MYSQLI_OPT_INT_AND_FLOAT_NATIVE, TRUE);
$securex->real_connect($hostname_securex, $username_securex, $password_securex, $database_securex) or die(header("Location: https://lm-activate.nexuscst.com/?na=1"));
?>

I'm receiving a 500 error on connection failure
I have a test.php file that just contains the line

<?php require_once('securex.php'); ?>


nothing else so I think there might be an error with the connection file, I've generated a new connection file and changed as above but it's still doing the same, I've tried PHP 8.1 and PHP 8.2, it returns 200 with a successful connection

I’ve tried generating a new connection file and still fails with 500 if the connection details are wrong

<?php
# FileName="WADYN_MYSQLI_CONN.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_securex = "localhost";
$database_securex = "database";
$username_securex = "account";
$password_securex = "password";

@session_start();
$securex = mysqli_init();
if (defined("MYSQLI_OPT_INT_AND_FLOAT_NATIVE")) $securex->options(MYSQLI_OPT_INT_AND_FLOAT_NATIVE, TRUE);
$securex->real_connect($hostname_securex, $username_securex, $password_securex, $database_securex) or die("Connect Error: " . mysqli_connect_error());
?>

Add this to the top of the page:
<?php
ini_set("display_errors",1);
?>

That might display the actual error instead of a generic 500 error message.

Are you sure the path to the connection file is right? I would expect it to be something like:

<?php require_once('Connections/securex.php'); ?>

Hi the error I'm getting is Fatal error: Uncaught mysqli_sql_exception, I've uploaded a couple of test files with the connection code modified in one with the connect_errno code and the other just the original generated code both throw this error when the information to connect is wrong instead of an error message or redirecting, I'll include FTP details if you want to have a look for your self or you can visit the URL I've uploaded the files to

You don't have real connection information in your connection file... it has:

$hostname_securex = "fakehost";
$database_securex = "database";
$username_securex = "account";
$password_securex = "password";

That needs to have real database credentials to connect to a database.

I updated the code on your connection file so it should work how you want it to now.
