This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
mysql_fetch_row is the same as mysql_fetch_array with MYSQL_NUM. That is, you get an array with a numeric index.
However, with mysql_fetch_array you can also specify MYSQL_ASSOC, in which case the array is indexed by the column names. And then there is MYSQL_BOTH where you can use either a numeric or column name index.
Using the links Matthew provide, look at how the examples differ for the two functions.
