Hello all, I am a PHP beginner and was wondering if I could get some help from some of the more experienced on this list. I have been trying to use an html form (with textboxes, radio buttons, and textareas) to input data into a mysql database. I am able to connect fully with the database and am able to create tables in it, but when I try to input information into the tables nothing happens. ever... I don't really know what to do from here, but I assume that a configuration is not set properly between mysql, apache, windows, or php. I really don't know what it could be. My code is here and I have tried to simplify the form in order to get it working, so here is my barebones code that hopefully has some errors: HTML: <html> <head> <title>Simplify</title> </head> <body> <form action="addform.php" method="post"> Login: <input type="text" name="login"> <input type="submit"> </form> </body> </html>
PHP file called "addform.php":
$user="chris"; $database="test"; mysql_connect(localhost,$user); @mysql_select_db($database) or die("unable to select database"); $query="INSERT INTO login VALUES ("'$login')"; mysql_query($query); mysql_close(); ?>
Login is the name of the table on the database named test.
I stopped using a password because it wouldn't let anything work even table creation when I tried to use a password. Any help that anyone could give would be greatly appreciated; there is probably some grievious error in this script. Thanks, Chris
