HTML form not posting to mysql db

Recommended Posts

Hello! This is my first real attempt at writing php to work with mysql and I am a DW user. Now when i test this page on apache, the form accepts all the data input, press submit, and I recieve no errors on screen. I check the db, and theres nothing there. Below I will supply the form and then the php file thats used for action:

 

the form:

 

 

<form name="updatebldg" method="post" action="bldgupdate.php">
         <table width="105%"  border="1" bordercolor="#FFFFFF" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

             </tr>
         </table>
   </form>

 

Now for the php file that supplies the action:

 

[!--PHP-Head--][div class=\'phptop\']PHP[/div][div class=\'phpmain\'][!--PHP-EHead--]<html>

<body>

[span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]<?php

mysql_connect [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]([/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\"localhost\"[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"], [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\"*****\"[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"], [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\"*****\"[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]);

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]mysql_query [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]([/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\"INSERT INTO bldgs (tmk, owner, address, landarea, propname, bldgarea, neighborhood, landvalue, city, bldgvalue, zip, bldgsonprop, pitt, tenure, zoning, date)

print ([/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\"Building record updated.\"[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]);

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]?>

[/span]</body>

try inputting your mysql_connect(); as a variable and use it after both the after database selection and insert strings.

 

if all else fails, use the die(mysql_error()); or simply mysql_error(); functions to find out what's wrong...however, these errors are usually impossible to understand, but you can always post back here!
