Unable to update users profiles

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Im trying to get a page to update profiles working and have been unsuccessful.  Its a basic form with a server.php to process the updates.  

Server.php

  $username = mysqli_real_escape_string($db, $_POST['username']);
  $email = mysqli_real_escape_string($db, $_POST['email']);
  $password_1 = mysqli_real_escape_string($db, $_POST['password_1']);
  $password_2 = mysqli_real_escape_string($db, $_POST['password_2']);
  $location = mysqli_real_escape_string($db, $_POST['location']);
  $class = mysqli_real_escape_string($db, $_POST['class']);
  $id = mysqli_real_escape_string($db, $_POST['id']);

  if (empty($username)) { array_push($errors, "Username is required"); }
  if (empty($email)) { array_push($errors, "Email is required"); }
  if (empty($password_1)) { array_push($errors, "Password is required"); }
  if ($password_1 != $password_2) {
	array_push($errors, "The two passwords do not match");
  }

  if (count($errors) == 0) {
  	$password = password_hash($password_1, PASSWORD_DEFAULT);

  	$query = "(UPDATE accounts SET password='".$password."', username='".$username."', email='".$email."', role='".$role."', class='".$class."' )";
  	mysqli_query($db, $query);
  	$_SESSION['username'] = $username;
  	$_SESSION['success'] = "Update Successful for user: " . $username;
  	header('location: index.php');
  }
}

update.php

<?php
session_start();

if (!isset($_SESSION['loggedin'])) {
    header('Location: ../login.php');
    exit();
}

if($_SESSION['class'] == 'user') {
    // Jump to user page
    header('Location:../user/home.php');
}
?>


<html>
<head>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />

    unset($_SESSION['success']);
}
	$id         = $_REQUEST['id'];
	$username 	= $_REQUEST['username'];
	$location 	= $_REQUEST['role'];
	$email 		= $_REQUEST['email'];
	$password	= $_REQUEST['password'];
	$class	    = $_REQUEST['class'];


?>

  	<div class="input-group">

				</datalist>
  	</div>
	
	
	
  	<div class="input-group">
  	  <input type="password" placeholder="Password" name="password_1">
  	</div>
  	<div class="input-group">

  	  <input type="password" placeholder="Confirm Location" name="password_2">
  	</div>
  	<div class="input-group">
  	  <button type="submit" class="btn" name="reg_user">Update</button>
  	</div>

  </form>



</body>
</html>

 

When I process the update it gives me a success message but the data in the table is not updated at all.  Any suggestions on what im doing wrong here?

Are you trying to add a new user to the table or update an existing user's data?

Either way, it's wrong.

  • The query as it is would set every record to have identical contents as there is no WHERE clause to limit it to update a particular record.
  • If you want add a new user you need an INSERT query.

You aren't doing any checking to confirm the query did actually work, you just assume it did and output a success message. Easiest way to check for errors is to add the following line of code just before the line that creates your mysqli connection...

mysqli_report(MYSQLI_REPORT_ERROR|MYSQLI_REPORT_STRICT);
