The purpose of putting the echo "Submit = $submit"; is to find out what is happening with your code. Once everything is working correctly they will be removed. What you need to find out is what is being held in the variable submit when you move from one page to the next, a point when you are expecting to enter the if($submit) clause.

I hope that clarifies it a bit.

all the best,

hallo ,

i have wriiten simple php script , below.
created databse "dollar1_allinfo" with table 'totalinfo'

but on clicking submit button ,

information entered is not entering in database.

also, echo statements are also not displaying after submit

if ($submit)

$db = mysql_connect("localhost","root");
mysql_query("INSERT INTO totalinfo (username,password,) VALUES
echo 'thank you';
echo 'So Hurry Up';

thank you.

Because your query and echoes are within an "if" block, I'd say that $submit is evaluating to FALSE, and thus not executing the query and echoes.

Add (before the if statement):

echo "Submit = $submit";

Make sure that $submit is evaluating to TRUE.

To All Beginning Programmers ("Newbies"), or just people who want to easily debug their code: Try adding debugging statements to help you find problems. A few echoes or prints in selected locations will help identify the issue. Make sure your variables are evaluating to values that you think they should be.

If you want to keep the debugging statements in your code and just
activate them when you need to see them, do something like:
// near the top of your code
// and anywehere in your code
if ($debug) {
echo "DEBUG: Submit = $submit
// or whatever echo might help you nail down the problem. Put as many of
these in your code and you can turm them ON and OFF very easily, by
changing one line of code.

OR for even quicker debugging, replace $debug=TRUE; with
and then you can turn it on in by adding ?debug=TRUE at the end of the
URL. Example:
**DISCLAIMER** Using the URL method is NOT a secure way to do this!!! And I'm sure there's plenty of folks groaning out there because it is a
BIG security hole. You really would want to do this on a development
machine and network, and remove the debug code for production. That
really should go without saying.

Good luck.
