  1. I've been working on a registration form and it seems like the better I get at solving more complex issues the smaller issues plague me the most. I've got the following function: //process database actions function process_database($post) { global $table; //connect to database $connect_db = new mysqli(DB_HOST, DB_USERNAME, DB_PASSWORD, DB_NAME); //check database connection if ($connect_db->connect_error) { return false; } else { if ($stmt = $connect_db->prepare( "INSERT INTO $table (firstname, lastname, username, email, password) VALUES ( ?, ?, ?, ?, ? )" ) ) { $stmt->bind_param(NULL, $firstname, $lastname, $username, $email, $password); $firstname = $post['firstname']; $lastname = $post['lastname']; $username = $post['username']; $email = $post['email']; $password = $post['password']; if (!$stmt->execute()) { return false; } } } return true; } This is in a functions.php file. The issue is in the $connect_db assignment that has the constants from the config.php file in it. That file looks like this: <?php ob_start(); session_start(); $timezone = date_default_timezone_set("America/xxxxxxx"); $whitelist = array('username', 'email', 'email2', 'password', 'password2'); //TODO here I've removed firstname and lastname from the whitelist as they're optional //may add them back and try to iterate around them in the future $table = 'users'; define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); define('DB_USERNAME', 'root'); define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); define('DB_NAME', 'means'); $conn = mysqli_connect(DB_HOST, DB_USERNAME, DB_PASSWORD, DB_NAME); if($conn->connect_errno) { printf("Connect Failed: %s\n", $conn->connect_error); exit(); } ob_end_flush(); ?> The constants defined in config.php are not being recognized in functions.php. I understand that constants are global and available throughout a script. I've connected to two files with the following line: //require config file require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/../config/config.php'); as I have the config/config.php outside htdocs. I know this works because of a db query to check uniqueness of username that works properly. Why are these constants coming back as undefined in the process_database().function.php? Nothing I've tried works and I've run out of ideas. TIA
  2. I'm messing around with unconventional coding practices, just to .... practice. The following code isn't being used for any amazing projects or anything, it's just me messing around with things getting practice. It's a simple code but it keeps telling me the constants are undefined. //defining the variables through an array $db['db_host'] = "localhost"; $db['db_user'] = "root"; $db['db_pass'] = ""; $db['db_name'] = "cms"; //fancy way of making them constants foreach($db as $key => $value) { define(strtoupper($key), $value); } $conn = mysqli_connect(DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PASS, DB_NAME); if($conn) { echo "We are connected"; } Simple, simple, very simple but can someone tell me why it's not creating the constants? All of them in $conn are coming back as undefined.
  3. Hey, I have defined a post value into a constants and I am trying to call the defined constant into a URL but its not working. It worked for a variable, but not for a constant. I have noticed that usually constants are defined in all caps. I defined it in lower case... Can that be the issue? Below is an example of how I wrote the code. Thank you! if(isset($_POST['submit'])) { define("store_name", "{$_POST['store_name']}"); goto_page("store_configuration_setting.php?send_store=".store_name."");
