Here are lines 6-10 of my code:
if (mysqli_connect_errno())
{
echo 'Error: Could not connect to database. Please try again later.';
exit;
}

There are no errors here. Are you sure you have the correct lines?

I think I fixed it by using this code as a model:
<?php
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","peter","abc123");
if (!$con)
{
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}

// some code

mysql_close($con);
?>

Thanks for your help, eelixduppy. I'm not sure why the other coding didn't work, but this at least is working for me.
