How do I fix this query to die (kill script) if no results imported?


$query18 = "SELECT * FROM Download";
$conn->query($query18);       

$totalrecords=$conn->query('SELECT FOUND_ROWS()')->fetch(PDO::FETCH_COLUMN); // Get result count

For a select it wouldn't be normal to have a try/catch, simple because the query should be correct and if there is a problem it's one time solution.
Bit different when doing inserts as you will need to know what went wrong.

But anyway
try {
    //  Your query stuff here
}
catch (PDOException $e) {
    die("Oops: " . $e->getMessage() );
}
