What's the advantage between the two functions?
I am learning PHP and wanting to display a list of things from mysql database, but I don't know what's the difference between Foreach and While PHP command and when should one function be used?

Use while for database iteration. Use foreach for array iteration.

It is hard to understand this if I don't see any code examples or explaining what you were talking about.
Programming is more different from theory.

That is all you need, best answer.

However to get more into details php.net is the best source you will ever find for PHP.

I can't post links to php because I have not enought posts but go and checkout php.net

On the PHP website itself it is explained very well plus you will find good examples in the comments below.

Best regards
Jérôme
