Code Snippet:

// Make a MySQL Connection
mysql_connect("localhost", "admin", "1admin") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("test") or die(mysql_error());

// Get all the data from the "example" table
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM example")
or die(mysql_error());

echo "<table border='1'>";
echo "<tr> <th>Name</th> <th>Age</th> </tr>";
// keeps getting the next row until there are no more to get
while($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result )) {
// Print out the contents of each row into a table
echo "<tr><td>";
echo $row['name'];
echo "</td><td>";
echo $row['age'];
echo "</td></tr>";
echo "</table>";
