are you running a local mysql server?

by "running the code on my browser" did you mean you were running it on a web server on the internet or locally on your computer?

did you create the database and the table?

could be a wrong password/username or database name.

No I checked multiple times I think it's the script

I am out of suggestions sorry , check their forums https://www.000webhost.com/forum/t/how-to-connect-to-database-using-php/42093

It connects, but I think it can't the line mysqli_select_db is the problem

Connection: $mysqli = new mysqli("DatabaseServerName", "UserName", "Password", "DatabaseName"); All above mentioned data you can get from service provider or set yourself.
