how to retreive specific values from database to display on webpage


Recommended Posts

i have a register and login page where the users can perform register and login task and their detail gets saved in the database. my requirement is that when the user enters his/her account, they should be redirected to their profile page, where they can view all their profile details. Till now i have been able to make the user login and dislay a part of their profile page, for this purpose the code that i am using is



<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<title>Welcome to your homepage</title>
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width", initial-scale=1.0">
        <link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
        <link href="css/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" />
        <link href="css/carousel.css" rel="stylesheet">
<div id="profile">
    <div class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-static-top">
        <div class="container">
            <a href="#" class = "navbar-brand"> <id="welcome">Welcome : <i><?php echo $login_session; ?></i> </a>
                <button class = "navbar-toggle" data-toggle = "collapse" data-target = ".navHeaderCollapse">
                    <span class = "icon-bar"> </span>
                    <span class = "icon-bar"> </span>
                    <span class = "icon-bar"> </span>
            <div class="collapse navbar-collapse navHeaderCollapse">
                <ul class = "nav navbar-nav navbar-right">
                    <li class ="active"> <a href="admin_profile.php">Home</a></li>
                    <li> <a href="retailer_logout.php"><id="logout">Log Out</a></li>

$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "mysql_user", "mysql_password");

if (!$conn) {
    echo "Unable to connect to DB: " . mysql_error();

if (!mysql_select_db("mydbname")) {
    echo "Unable to select mydbname: " . mysql_error();

$sql = "SELECT id as userid, fullname, userstatus
        FROM   sometable
        WHERE  userstatus = 1";

$result = mysql_query($sql);

if (!$result) {
    echo "Could not successfully run query ($sql) from DB: " . mysql_error();

if (mysql_num_rows($result) == 0) {
    echo "No rows found, nothing to print so am exiting";

// While a row of data exists, put that row in $row as an associative array
// Note: If you're expecting just one row, no need to use a loop
// Note: If you put extract($row); inside the following loop, you'll
//       then create $userid, $fullname, and $userstatus
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
    echo $row["userid"];
    echo $row["fullname"];
    echo $row["userstatus"];



Get the Values you need by running the php above, then store them in a session. and then change your .html file to a .php filetype.

and then you can put <?PHP echo $_SESSION['value']; ?> where ever you want.

Just be aware that mysql_* functions have been deprecated. If you're not doing so already, you'll need to switch to PDO or MySQLi at some point. More information can be found here:


I agree, i use prepared statements in mysqli, mysql is depreciated. Good point out.
