Hello Slim Framework users!
I'm encountering some facts that mysql statements getting died lately.

I'm actually connecting my current php file to the mysql database.
And then I'm trying to use the Slim Framework to obtain the data.

Here are my code


function getConnection(){

echo "getConnection ";
$this->dbconn = mysql_connect($this->db, $this->user, $this->pass);
    if (!$this->dbconn) {
        echo "Cannot connect to database.";

    $dbconns  = null;
    $dbconns = mysql_select_db('fams', $this->dbconn);

        return null;
    } else {
        return $dbconns;    

// END OF getConnection method                  


if I used the code '$dbconns = mysql_select_db('fams', $this->dbconn);' from there on, Slim Frameworks gives me Error;
It said, Uncaught exception 'RuntimeException' . Huh? What's that?

    can you paste your entire code and not just part as it is difficult to help without all the code. Also this might not be Slim related but I will try and help anyway.
