mysql_db_query needs 3 parameters:

int mysql_db_query(string database, string query, int [link_identifier] );

try:

$row = mysql_query($query, $sql);

Sorry mistake, try that:

<?
$sql="select * from table";
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "", "");

$result = mysql("yourdatabase",$sql,$conn);

$row=mysql_fetch_row($result);
if ($row){
        echo ("good");
}else{
        echo ("bad");
}
?>
