PHP Mysql Select Query

        include 'inc/db_connect.php';
        $order="SELECT name, email, bitcoin, perfectmoney, egopay FROM persons WHERE id='id'";
        echo "success";
        echo "failed";
        $row = mysqli_fetch_array($result);
        echo $row['name'];

My code looks correct but i don't understand why its not echoing $row['name'];.

your WHERE clause is missing a dollar sign WHERE id='id' it should be WHERE id='$id'

I dont think he is passing a variable there, its just a full query.

Thanks for showing the mistake George, it helped.

Try this instead,

$row = mysqli_fetch_array($result);
        echo $row[0];
