Help with adding checkbox into mysql

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,


I'm really struggling to find whats wrong with this code. The form before submit has several checkboxes as part of an array which is below

$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);    
$sql = "SELECT * FROM `engineers`";
$result = $conn->query($sql);
while($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result)) {
    $endid = $row["endid"];
    $resource_name = $row["resource_name"];
    $resource_email = $row["resource_email"];
    $picture = $row["picture"];
    echo "<label>".$resource_name."</label><input type='checkbox'  class='form-control' name='engineers[]' value=''.$endid.''><br>";

The next page then goes to this and I get the error "Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /homepages/39/d837976904/htdocs/Scheduler/add_job3.php:10 Stack trace: #0 {main} thrown in /homepages/39/d837976904/htdocs/Scheduler/add_job3.php on line 10"

// Initialize the session

$process = $_GET["process"];

include "Includes/config.php";
include "Includes/db.php";

mysql_connect($servername, $username, $password) or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die(mysql_error());

$checkBox = implode(',', $_POST['engineers']);

    $query1="INSERT INTO job_activity (endid) VALUES ('" . $checkBox . "')";     

    mysql_query($query1) or die (mysql_error() );

    echo "Complete";



Can anyone help with the code please :(
