Default value


Recommended Posts

It depends on what you mean by "the user".


If you want the DEFAULT setting of a column to use a variable that only exists in PHP then obviously; no you can't do that, you will have to supply the username in your queries.


There are systems that use a separate databaseuser for each website user and even they can't use the DEFAULT, but they can use a trigger to fetch the username and fill it in.
