Php error

I copied this code online to create a forum, but when I run the code on my browser. Instead of connecting and selecting a database. It shows "cannot connect to db". Please how can I fix it. Here's the code : https://code.sololearn.com/wbHnAH4DjgOo/?ref=app

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?

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