Please i have tried severally to connect to a my sql database on cpanel

I used this codes

The form code is
<form action= "insert.php" method="post">

First name: <input type="text" name="fname" id="fname"/><br><br>

Last name: <input type="text" name="lname"id="lname" /><br><br>

Gender:<input type="text" name="Gender" id="Gender"/><br><br>

<p><label>Select State:</label><select name="State"

<option value="-"selected="selected">-</option>
<option value="Abia">Abia</option>
<option value="Adamawa">Adamawa</option>
<option value="Akwaibom">Akwaibom</option>
<option value="Anambra">Anambra</option>


Lga: <input type="text" name="Lga" id="Lga"/><br><br>

<input type="submit" name="s1"id="s1"value="Submit" />




The php script in cgi folder is insert.php






$db = mysql_connect("$localhost,$lamsanng_admin ,$^^^^^^);

if (!$db)


die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());


mysql_select_db($lamsanng_Data ", $db);
$fname = $_POST["fname"];,
$fname= $_POST["fname"];
$Gender= $_POST["Gender"];
$Lga= $_POST["Lga"];
$State= $_POST["State"];

$query="INSERT INTO 'tbl_Jobs'";

( 'Id', 'Firstname', 'Lastname','Gender','State','Lga','submit_date')VALUES { ( '$First_name',$'Last_name,'$Gender','$State,'$Lga,'$submit_date');


if (!mysql_query($sql,$db))


die('Error: ' . mysql_error());


echo "1 record added";



The code to retrieve the stored data to my webpage is

// create short variable names

if (!$searchtype || !$searchterm) {
echo 'You have not entered search details. Please go back and try again.';

if (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()){
$searchtype = addslashes($searchtype);
$searchterm = addslashes($searchterm);

@ $db = new mysqli('localhost', 'lamsanng_admin', '^^^^^^', 'lamsanng_Data');

if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
echo 'Error: Could not connect to database. Please try again later.';

$query = "select * from 'tbl_Jobs' where ".$searchtype." like '%".$searchterm."%'";
$result = $db->query($query);

$num_results = $result->num_rows;

echo "<p>records found: ".$num_results."</p>";

for ($i=0; $i <$num_results; $i++) {
$row = $result->fetch_assoc();
echo "<p><strong>".($i+1).". Fname: ";
echo htmlspecialchars(stripslashes($row['Fname']));
echo "</strong><br />Lname: ";
echo stripslashes($row['Id']);
echo "</p>";



Please what is wrong with the scripts.
Thank you.^^^^^^^
