I would like to know the difference between these two sentences given below.
1. To knowing people were not there i felt bad.
2. To know people were not there i felt bad.
I would like to know that if it is ok to write "to know" instead of "to knowing" in a sentance.

You can use either the gerund - knowing or to + infinitive - to know.
Knowing people were not there, I felt bad.
There are places where "to knowing" can be used, but your sentence is not one of them. Eg, "There are advantages to knowing Latin"; "I wouldn't admit to knowing him."
I can't think of any examples of where you can use "to know" where "to knowing" is correct, or vice versa.
