expects parameter, boolean given
An elderly gentleman has asked me to get an old PHP/MYSQL site working, he supplied it on CD. I've uploaded it to my server, made a new database and imported his old one with new user / password etc etc.
It's a VERY dated site and I'm going to persuade him to have a new one but when I make a selection from the pull-downs on the left I get this, plus other errors:
Warning: mysql_num_rows() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/ncapc605/public_html/mintinbox/config/functies.php on line 298
Have a look at: http://mintinbox.leemingdesign.co.uk/
Ps... man who made original site was Dutch and is now dead so there's not much chance of any help from him.
He's set on having this up an running, so is it worth investigating a solution to this error or what?
