Insert data into MySQL database in PHP


In this tutorial, you will be learning about how to insert data in php mysql which you will pass the data from your html input tags and that will be sent from the html FORM tag using POST method, then write the MySQL query to insert data into data using php scripting language.

To design the HTML FORM we are going to use Bootstrap v5. 

Note: For better and detailed understanding. please watch out the Video above.

Let's get started.

Step 1: Create a table named employees into your Database (MySQL) as follows:

CREATE TABLE `employees` (
  `id` int(11NOT NULL,
  `name` varchar(191NOT NULL,
  `phone` varchar(20NOT NULL,
  `email` varchar(50NOT NULL,
  `designation` varchar(191NOT NULL,
  `created_at` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT current_timestamp()
);

Step 2: Create a index.php file and paste the below html form design code:

<?php session_start(); ?>
<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <!-- Required meta tags -->
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

    <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
    <link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/bootstrap@5.0.0-beta1/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

    <title>Funda Of Web IT</title>
  </head>
<body>

    <div class="container">
        <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-12">

                <?php 
                    if(isset($_SESSION['status']))
                    {
                        ?>
                            <div class="alert alert-warning alert-dismissible fade show" role="alert">
                            <strong>Hey!</strong> <?php echo $_SESSION['status']; ?>
                            <button type="button" class="btn-close" data-bs-dismiss="alert" aria-label="Close"></button>
                            </div>
                        <?php
                         unset($_SESSION['status']);
                    }
                ?>

                <div class="card mt-4">
                    <div class="card-header">
                        <h4>How to Insert Data into Database in php</h4>
                    </div>
                    <div class="card-body">
                        <form action="code.php" method="POST">
                            <div class="row">
                                <div class="col-md-12">
                                    <div class="form-group mb-3">
                                        <label for="">Name</label>
                                        <input type="text" name="name" class="form-control" required placeholder="Enter your Name">
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                                <div class="col-md-12">
                                    <div class="form-group mb-3">
                                        <label for="">Phone Number</label>
                                        <input type="text" name="phone" class="form-control" required placeholder="Enter your Phone Number">
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                                <div class="col-md-12">
                                    <div class="form-group mb-3">
                                        <label for="">Email</label>
                                        <input type="text" name="email" class="form-control" required placeholder="Enter your Email Address">
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                                <div class="col-md-12">
                                    <div class="form-group mb-3">
                                        <label for="">Designation</label>
                                        <input type="text" name="designation" class="form-control" required placeholder="Enter your Designation">
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                                <div class="col-md-12">
                                    <div class="form-group mb-3">
                                        <button type="submit" name="insert_data" class="btn btn-primary">SAVE DATA</button>
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                            </div>
                        </form>
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.js" ></script>
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/bootstrap@5.0.0-beta1/dist/js/bootstrap.bundle.min.js"></script>

  </body>
</html>

Now, when you click on the Submit button, the <form> contains action="code.php" so, lets go to STEP 2 to write the code: 

Step 3: Create a code.php file and paste the below code to insert data in MySQL Database in php.

<?php
session_start();
$con = mysqli_connect("localhost","root","","phptutorials");

if(isset($_POST['insert_data']))
{
    $name = mysqli_real_escape_string($con$_POST['name']);
    $phone = mysqli_real_escape_string($con$_POST['phone']);
    $email = mysqli_real_escape_string($con$_POST['email']);
    $designation = mysqli_real_escape_string($con$_POST['designation']);

    $query = "INSERT INTO employees (name,phone,email,designation) VALUES ('$name','$phone','$email','$designation') ";
    $query_run = mysqli_query($con$query);

    if($query_run)
    {
        $_SESSION['status'] = "Data Inserted Successfully";
        header("Location: index.php");
    }
    else
    {
        $_SESSION['status'] = "Data Not Inserted";
        header("Location: index.php");
    }
}

?>
