Retrieve data from MySQL database using php

Before you start this lesson, I assume that you finished reading the following tutorials:

  1. install phpmyAdmin, mysql , php
  2. Create Database by using phpMyAdmin
  3. Working with forms
  4. Insert Form Data into Database

In this lesson, we will learn how to retrieve data from MySQL database.We will retrieve phone number based on name input.

Collect input Form

We build a "form" like the following

<form action="action.php" method="post">
<input type="text" name="name"><br>
<input type="submit">

Save the above code to a HTML file in your c:\inetpub\wwwroot(see Install phpMyAdmin,MySql, PHP for detail)

PHP Retrieve data from Mysql

In the lesson Working with Forms , we already know how to get form input in php.

We use the following code to retrieve phone number associated with name input.

//connect to database
@mysql_select_db($database) or die("<b>Unable to specified database</b>");
//perform query
$query = "select * from contact where name='$name'";
$result=mysql_query($query) or die('Error, insert query failed');
//get result
echo "Hi! $name. Your phone number is <b> $phone</b> ";

Save above code to "acion.php".

In the above code, we used two new Mysql function: mysql_query and mysql_result(). mysql_resul syntax is mysql_result(result resource,int row,[column name]). In this example, result resource is $result, row is 0(the first row), column name is "phonenumber".

Test it like the following:

Load the HTML file to your browser like http://localhost/myhtml.html, then type name in. You should be able to retrieve its phone number.
