When I type in 'localhost' in my IE, it reads my own compiled index.php file in the root folder which I have set, but as soon as I give it another path it generates an error:

Could not connect to MySQL: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: No such host is known

It has to do with not connecting with the MySQL database with data from my login.php file, I think, although I have been able to connect to the database previously many times with this file.

Any suggestions will be welcomed.
Thanks

Sorry, here is my php file:

<?php // loginlocal.php
define ('DB_USER','root');
define ('DB_PASSWORD','*********98');
define ('DB_HOST','localhost/IBSMSlocal/htdocs');
define ('DB_NAME','IBSMStemplate');
$dbc = @mysqli_connect (DB_HOST,DB_USER,DB_PASSWORD,DB_NAME) or die ('Could not connect to MySQL: ' . mysqli_connect_error() );
mysqli_set_charset($dbc,'utf8');
?>
