if u use PHP3 and MySQL then the PHP script should look smthng like
MYSQL_CONNECT("my.host.somewhere","myuser","myspassword") OR DIE("server
is not reachable");
@MYSQL_SELECT_DB("MyDatabase") OR DIE("database is unavailable");
$question = MYSQL_QUERY("SELECT image FROM table WHERE ID = '$myID'");
$image = MYSQL_RESULT($question,0,"image");
Header( "Content-type: image/gif");
and in html/php3 script that calls the script add
also, in showimage it's nice to determine size of image and add WIDTH
and HEIGHT tags...
