Ok so i hope I have got this in the right catagory because it is kinda cross language coding...
What I need is a piece of text to be live on the page.
For instance, there are currently x users in our database.
I have this so far which displays the amount of users
PHP Code:
We currently have 
$password "pass";      
$host "localhost";
$database "users";
$table "users";
mysql_connect($host,$username,$password) or die("Error connecting to Database!    " mysql_error());
mysql_select_db($database) or die("Cannot select database!    " mysql_error());
$result mysql_query("SELECT * FROM $table");
$num_rows mysql_num_rows($result);
 echo (
$num1_rows $num_rows); ?> users!
but how can i make it so if someone joins it will automatically update without refreshing the page?
Thanks in advance,
PS will i need to use javascript and/or AJAX?
