Go to solution Solved by Barand,

Im new to PHP and am trying to make a simple form where it puts the form data into a table called "users"


This is the form:

<p><form method="post" action="register.php">
<table border="0" align="center">
<td>Username</td><td><input type="text" name="username" size="15" >
<br />
<td>Password</td><td><input name="password" type="password" size="15"></td>
<br />
<td><input type="submit" value="Sign Up"/></td><td></td>


This is the php code:

$dbhost  = '';
$dbname  = '';
$dbuser  = '';
$dbpass  = ''; 


$order = "INSERT INTO users
			(username, password)

$result = mysql_query($order);
	echo("<br>It Worked!");
} else{
	echo("<br>It Failed!");



But when i upload it to the server and try it, it says there was a entry but its blank.....

When i upload it to a server and try it, it automaticly seems to post the data to the database before i even enter a username/password!


when i type a username/password in and post it again it says there was another entry but its blank.....


any help?


- Thanks!

echo $order;


to see what the query looks like


You missed out a couple of lines before the query. You need to get the POSTed data and sanitize it.


$username = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['username'];
$password= mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['password'];
