I'm trying to do a basic select but I'm running into an error message:
No Database Selected
Here's the code I used (password, domain and user have been changed for privacy purposes)
#!/usr/bin/perl use DBI; use CGI qw/:standard/; import_names('f'); print header(); my $database = "databasename=default"; my $host = ""; my $driver = "DBI:mysql"; my $user = "user"; my $pass = "pass"; my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:$database;$host", $user, $pass) or print "Can't connect to mysql database: $DBI::errstr<br>"; $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT section, content FROM webdata WHERE secti +on=home") or print "Can't prepare statement: $DBI::errstr<br>"; $sth->execute() or print "Can't execute statement: $DBI::errstr<br>"; $dbh->disconnect();
The code doesn't flag any syntax errors, so I'm a little confused. Is it me or something I should email the sysadmin about?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
