Search in MySQL from PHP


Recommended Posts


I am trying to build a search page that searches MySQL database. I managed to do the search, but I have a small problem when giving the query.


If for example I am searching for "how to make a search" and I type "make a search" - it works fine but if It type "how to search" it doesn't work.

can someone help me out since I am loosing my mind on this.

my sql command is:

$SQL = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM stocks WHERE `name` LIKE '%$keywords%' order by code");

help is very appreciated
