Update data in mysql

Update/Edit data from mysql database, can do it easily.

Syntax

"UPDATE table_name SET column_name1=' value', column_name2=' value' WHERE column_name=' value' ";

Overview

In this tutorial, we create 3 PHP files for testing our code.
1. list_records.php
2. update.php
3. update_ac.php

Steps
1. Create table "test_mysql" in database "test"
2. Create file list_records.php
3. Create file update.php
4. Create file update_ac.php

STEP1: Set Up Database

Create database and table using phpMyAdmin


CREATE TABLE `test_mysql` (
`id` int(4) NOT NULL auto_increment,
`name` varchar(65) NOT NULL default '',
`lastname` varchar(65) NOT NULL default '',
`email` varchar(65) NOT NULL default '',
PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) TYPE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=7 ;

--
-- Dumping data for table `test_mysql`
--

INSERT INTO `test_mysql` VALUES (1, 'Billly', 'Blueton', 'bb5@phpeasystep.com');
INSERT INTO `test_mysql` VALUES (2, 'Jame', 'Campbell', 'jame@somewhere.com');
INSERT INTO `test_mysql` VALUES (3, 'Mark', 'Jackson', 'mark@phpeasystep.com');
INSERT INTO `test_mysql` VALUES (4, 'Linda', 'Travor', 'lin65@phpeasystep.com');
INSERT INTO `test_mysql` VALUES (5, 'Joey', 'Ford', 'fordloi@somewhere.com');
INSERT INTO `test_mysql` VALUES (6, 'Sidney', 'Gibson', 'gibson@phpeasystep.com');

STEP2: Create file - list_records.php

############### Code

<?php
$host="localhost"; // Host name
$username=""; // Mysql username
$password=""; // Mysql password
$db_name="test"; // Database name
$tbl_name="test_mysql"; // Table name

// Connect to server and select database.
mysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password")or die("cannot connect");
mysql_select_db("$db_name")or die("cannot select DB");

$sql="SELECT * FROM $tbl_name";
$result=mysql_query($sql);
?>


<table width="400" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td>
<table width="400" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
<tr>
<td colspan="4"><strong>List data from mysql </strong> </td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td align="center"><strong>Name</strong></td>
<td align="center"><strong>Lastname</strong></td>
<td align="center"><strong>Email</strong></td>
<td align="center"><strong>Update</strong></td>
</tr>

<?php
while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($result)){
?>

<tr>
<td><? echo $rows['name']; ?></td>
<td><? echo $rows['lastname']; ?></td>
<td><? echo $rows['email']; ?></td>

// link to update.php and send value of id
<td align="center"><a href="update.php?id=<? echo $rows['id']; ?>">update</a></td>
</tr>

<?php
}
?>

</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

<?php
mysql_close();
?>

 

STEP3: Create file - update.php

############### Code

<?php
$host="localhost"; // Host name
$username=""; // Mysql username
$password=""; // Mysql password
$db_name="test"; // Database name
$tbl_name="test_mysql"; // Table name

// Connect to server and select database.
mysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password")or die("cannot connect");
mysql_select_db("$db_name")or die("cannot select DB");

// get value of id that sent from address bar
$id=$_GET['id'];

// Retrieve data from database
$sql="SELECT * FROM $tbl_name WHERE id='$id'";
$result=mysql_query($sql);

$rows=mysql_fetch_array($result);
?>


<table width="400" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="update_ac.php">
<td>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td colspan="3"><strong>Update data in mysql</strong> </td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td align="center"><strong>Name</strong></td>
<td align="center"><strong>Lastname</strong></td>
<td align="center"><strong>Email</strong></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td align="center">
<input name="name" type="text" id="name" value="<? echo $rows['name']; ?>">
</td>
<td align="center">
<input name="lastname" type="text" id="lastname" value="<? echo $rows['lastname']; ?>" size="15">
</td>
<td>
<input name="email" type="text" id="email" value="<? echo $rows['email']; ?>" size="15">
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>
<input name="id" type="hidden" id="id" value="<? echo $rows['id']; ?>">
</td>
<td align="center">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">
</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</form>
</tr>
</table>

<?php
// close connection
mysql_close();
?>

STEP4: Create file - update_ac.php

############### Code
<?php
$host="localhost";
// Host name
$username=""; // Mysql username
$password=""; // Mysql password
$db_name="test"; // Database name
$tbl_name="test_mysql"; // Table name

// Connect to server and select database.
mysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password")or die("cannot connect");
mysql_select_db("$db_name")or die("cannot select DB");

// update data in mysql database
$sql="UPDATE $tbl_name SET name='$name', lastname='$lastname', email='$email' WHERE id='$id'";
$result=mysql_query($sql);

// if successfully updated.
if($result){
echo "Successful";
echo "<BR>";
echo "<a href='list_records.php'>View result</a>";
}

else {
echo "ERROR";
}
