Hi guys!

Id like to modify the below code, so that, I have the following in a web page:

------------------------------------------http://localhost/create.php

Please enter a name of the database you'd like to create:
________________   (testbox to the left to enter name of database)

##########  (Submit button to the left to create the database)

<Outcome here of the result of submitting the request here, on the same page ideally>

Here is my code:

<?php
include 'config.php';
include 'opendb.php';

$query  = "CREATE DATABASE Animals";
mysql_query($query);
$result = mysql_error();

if ($result == "")
{
  echo "Creation of database succeeded!";
}
else
{
  echo "Creation of database failed: $result";
}


include 'closedb.php';
?>
