PHP and MYSQL help

Recommended Posts

Alright here is my issue, I'm very new to php, but I've learned alot, I know how to post to mysql database and manage it, but i dont know how to pull information.

I need to pull information from 1 row out of a database and put it into a printable table,

can someone show me code examples of how this could be done?

this is what i have so far

[code=php:0]
<?php


//connect
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost","www2","*******") or die ("cannot connect");
$db = mysql_select_db("accu") or die( "Unable to select database");

if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()){
$orderid = mysql_real_escape_string(stripslashes($_REQUEST['id']));
} else {
$orderid = mysql_real_escape_string($_REQUEST['id']);
}


?>
[/code]

What is the name of your table, what are the column names and which row do you want the data from?

Here is a quick example:
[code=php:0]<?php

//connect
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "www2", "*******") or die ("cannot connect");
$db = mysql_select_db("accu") or die( "Unable to select database");

if (get_magic_quotes_gpc())
{
    $orderid = stripslashes($_REQUEST['id']);
}

$orderid = mysql_real_escape_string($_REQUEST['id']);

$sql = "SELECT * FROM tbl_name WHERE id_field='$orderid'";
$result = mysql_query($sql, $conn);

echo '<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
';

// now we display the results:
$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)
{
    echo '<tr><td>' . implode('</td><td>', $row) . "</td></tr>\n";
}

echo '</table>';

?>[/code]

Make sure you change [b]tbl_name[/b] to the actual table you are going to be querying in the accu database. Also change [b]id_field[/b] field with the name of the field that contains the id.

Also you might want to go through the tutorials over at [url=http://www.php-mysql-tutorial.com/]php-mysql-tutorials.com[/url]

well I'll show you what i got so far

[code=php:0]
<?php


//connect
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost","www2","***") or die ("cannot connect");
$db = mysql_select_db("accu") or die( "Unable to select database");

if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()){
$orderid = mysql_real_escape_string(stripslashes($_REQUEST['id']));
} else {
$orderid = mysql_real_escape_string($_REQUEST['id']);
}
$query = "SELECT * FROM joborder WHERE id='" . $orderid . "'";
//now send the query to the DB
$result = mysql_query($query);
//now read the results, i'm assuming your only looking for one row, so
$my_row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC) or die ( mysql_error() );
print_r($my_row);


error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');


?>
[/code]

This is what someone else told me to use, but it doesnt work

i get this error, "Unknown column 'id' in 'where clause'"

Okay thats fine. Change:
[code]$my_row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC) or die ( mysql_error() );
print_r($my_row);[/code]
with:
[code]echo '<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">';

// now we display the results:
$my_row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result) or die ( mysql_error() );
echo "\n<tr><td>" . implode('</td><td>', $my_row) . "</td></tr>\n";

echo '</table>';[/code]

Please read my thread above. This is what your code should be:
[code=php:0]<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');

//connect
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost","www2","***") or die ("cannot connect");

$db = mysql_select_db("accu") or die( "Unable to select database");

if (get_magic_quotes_gpc())
{
    $orderid = stripslashes($_REQUEST['id']);
}

$orderid = mysql_real_escape_string($_REQUEST['id']);

$query = "SELECT * FROM joborder WHERE id='" . $orderid . "'";

//now send the query to the DB
$result = mysql_query($query);

echo '<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">';

// now read the results, i'm assuming your only looking for one row, so
$my_row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result) or die ( mysql_error() );
echo "\n<tr><td>" . implode('</td><td>', $my_row) . "</td></tr>\n";

echo '</table>';

?>[/code]
