Delete all data from table using PDO


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I have following code to delete particular row from a table based on the title. But how can I delete all data from the table?


require 'connpdo.php';
$naslov = $_POST['naslov'];
//delete some data
$sqlInsert = 'DELETE FROM bloging WHERE title=:title';
$preparedStatement = $conn->prepare($sqlInsert);
$preparedStatement->execute(array(':title' => $naslov));

header('Location: http://localhost/ITAPHP/index.php');

So I would need something which would say DELETE * FROM bloging...Basically I have this table bloging with 3 fields id, title and text, and above code will identify specific post based on the title and delete that particular post. But I need button to delete all posts, to empty table.


Thank you in advance!

quickest way is to run this query


Would you be kind to put it in above code? I don't know how. I found following code using mysql not PDO and it works. But I need it in PDO. Or just tell me where exactly does it fit this line you wrote.  Thank you


$connection = mysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password") or die ("Unable to connect to server");
mysql_select_db("$database") or die ("Unable to select database");
$sql = "TRUNCATE TABLE `$table`";
echo "Table Deleted";
