How can I save the my database contents to json

Recommended Posts

This is my script:


I'm trying to save the contents of a database to json

I've getting the database contents to echo out but can get it encoded into json.


How can I do this or what am I doing wrong here?


echo '<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/styles.css" />';

    // Create connection
    //$connection = mysqli_connect("localhost","root","","finalprojectapp"); //Localhost Connection

    //Check Connection
        echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_error();
        echo "Success, Connection Achieved";

    $result = mysqli_query($connection,"SELECT * FROM member");

    while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result))
      echo "<br/><br/>ID: <p>" . $row['id'] . "</p>
             Phone Number: <p>" . $row["phoneNumber"] . "</p>
           First Name: <p>" .  $row["firstName"] . "</p>
           Last Name: <p>" . $row["lastName"] . "</p>
           Profile Picture: <p>" . $row["profilePicture"] . "</p>
           Photo: <p>" . $row["photo"] . "</p>
           Video: <p>" . $row["video"] . "</p>
           Text: <p>" . $row["text"] . "</p>
           Call: <p>" . $row["call"] . "</p>
           Activity: <p>" . $row["activity"] . "</p>
           Latitude: <p>" . $row["latitude"] . "</p>
           Longitude: <p>" . $row ["longitude"] . "</p>
           Date: <p>" . $row["date"] . "</p>
           Time: <p>" . $row["time"] . "</p><br/>";

$a = array($row["id"],$row['phoneNumber'],$row['firstName'], "\xc3\xa9");

echo "Normal: ",  json_encode($a), "";

Sorry for not responding straight away. I've just got back from a camping trip.

Also sorry for not wrapping my code in <>.


The most important part of the code I need working isn't working:


It's this section:

$a = array($row["id"],$row['phoneNumber'],$row['firstName'], "\xc3\xa9");

echo "Normal: ",  json_encode($a), "";

Which is returning this:

Normal: [null,null,null,"\u00e9"]

I want it to return the values stored in my mySQL database and not null but it doesn't seem to be working.


Any ideas
