Use this:

$con = mysqli_connect($hostname,$user,$password,$database);

You don't need:

mysqli_select_db

Your code will be:

$db_host = 'localhost';
$db_user = 'root';
$db_pass = '';
$db_name = 'cms';

$con = mysqli_connect($db_host,$db_user,$db_pass,$db_name);

Why you trying use longest way? Instead, try:

$con=mysqli_connect('localhost', 'root', '', 'cms');

Try this:

 mysqli_select_db($conn, $db_name);

How much code do you tend to write before you test?

I have noted over the years, that I tend to write maybe a screen full of code, then test to make sure it does what it should.
