    Hi, im not too good with this, i don’t really understand the error message that im getting.
    This is the code.

    class DBConnection
    private $_hostName;
    private $_userName;
    private $_userPassowrd;
    private $_dbName;

    private $_dbConnection;
    private $_dbQuery;

    public function __construct($hostName, $userName, $userPassword, $dbName)
    $this->_hostName = $hostName;
    $this->_userName = $userName;
    $this->_userPassword = $userPassword;
    $this->_dbName = $dbName;

    public function connectToDB()
    $this->_dbConnection = new mysqli($this->_hostName, $this->_userName, $this->_userPassword, $this->_dbName) or die();

    return ($this->_dbConnection) ? true : false;

    public function logInUser($userMail, $userPassword)
    $tempResult = $this->_dbConnection->query("SELECT * FROM userDetails WHERE userMail='$userMail' AND userPassword='$userPassword'");

    if ($tempResult)
    return $tempResult->fetch_assoc();
    return false;


    This is the error.

    Fatal error: Call to a member function query() on a non-object in / “directory”/scripts/php/class/DBConnection.php on line 30


    Make sure there is a connection before you call ‘query’. It looks like you’re calling logInUser while _dbConnection has no value yet.
