Could you please not use caps in your question title? IT MAKES THE QUESTION SOUND IRRITATING AND DOESN'T ENCOURAGE ME TO LISTEN TO YOU.

You should now be able to figure out why the missing mysqli error is coming. If you can't, can you also pastebin your full phpmysql.php?

comment Installing LAMP - PHP not connecting with MySQL - Why?
Okay. So that means your server is not set up properly. Can you give us the lines that appear in /var/log/apache2/error.log? Just say in a terminal: less +F /var/log/apache2/error.log (if permission error, prefix sudo). Now in browser, refresh the page. Copy paste the new lines that came up in the terminal in something like pastebin and post the link here.

Is the page failing to load, or is it 200 OK? You can check this by doing a Ctrl-Shift-C (on chromium) and clicking on the Network tab and then refreshing the page. Tell us what's under 'status' column for 'localhost/phpmysql.php' under Name?

comment Hard disk partition problems installing Ubuntu 14.04 with Windows XP
Adding to @Xieerqi's answer, usually partitioning takes too long if you do it during installation. So a suggestion is to boot into Live ubuntu, open GParted, create an extra partition with some space and then proceed to install Ubuntu. Also, creating a partition is an expensive operation depending on the size of your hard disk, the format etc. So those details would hep.
