How to save data in MYSQL database in MySQL Help Posted May 13, 2020 35 minutes ago, gizmola said: With all due respect to you, you are an admitted novice. Many of the people who have replied to you have developed systems with php and mysql professionally for years if not decades. People are asking you to verify some things for a reason. When I'm diagnosing something, I may be running through a mental checklist that includes a vast number of variables you aren't aware of, having coded for a living. You think that it might not be saving the data (but you aren't sure) It could be saving the data, but just not reading it back You need error reporting turned on to see if there are hidden runtime errors or warnings that will pinpoint a problem Many people here will help you with your problem, but I will not for one reason only. I don't need you to change to PDO, although I agree it's a far nicer API to work with than mysqli. But I absolutely will not help anyone who is not using bound parameters and prepared statements. It's dangerous obsolete coding. Your code (including storing the passwords as md5 hashes without even a salt!!! harkens back to a time 10+ years in the past. Whether this is a hobby or not, there is no reason to write obsolete code when you can just as easily write modern code. It would take at most 10 minutes to read about the technique and add the code you would need to utilize that parameters. I can't be bothered to help someone debug something that is teaching them an improper practice any more than an electrician would teach someone how to work on wiring in their home, and not insist they turn off the circuit breaker and verify it was off with a multimeter. I'm not saying that you are the type of person who is stubborn and can't or won't try and learn, but in the past when people start to react the way you did as illustrated by your quoted comment, it's someone who is stubborn and easily offended. That does not lead to learning and a valuable expenditure of my time or the time of the other volunteers who answer questions. First things first dont friggen attack me okay? I am NEW TO PROGRAMMING i know nothing! Hense the reason why the program that I am creating is so stupid and doesnt work and all the other insults you gave me. I wasnt against the idea of using the error reporting because I did and IT SHOWED ME NOTHING. I was simply asking for other suggestions. So if you arent gonna be helpful then leave me the hell alone. And yes I do have a lot of damn attitude.
