    Lightbulb PHP MYSQL update query not updating fields

    I have the following PHP script to update two time/date fields in the database.

    When i run this the fields are not updated.

    Can anyone see where i m going wrong.

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $con 
    mysql_connect("localhost","dbname","dbpassword");
    if (!
    $con)
      {
      die(
    'Could not connect: ' mysql_error());
      }
      
    echo 
    'Connected successfully';

    mysql_select_db("my_db"$con);

    mysql_query("UPDATE msm_content SET created = '2011-01-02 00:00:00', modified = '2011-01-01 00:00:00'");

    echo 
    'Query Updated successfully';

    mysql_close($con);
    ?>
    Your guidance is much appreciated.

    There may be many reasons for that.

    Try to insert the line below before the db closing function:

    echo mysql_errno($con) . ": " . mysql_error($con);


    and see what it shows.

    I'd start from modifying the query line, like that

    mysql_query("UPDATE msm_content SET created = '2011-01-02 00:00:00', modified = '2011-01-01 00:00:00'", $con);
