Default hit F5 refresh triggers again the query

When i hit the F5 to refresh the page, sql statement in that page runs again. It means last insert, update or delete process is triggered again. How can i solve this problem?

You need to use cookies both in javascript and php
  if ($_COOKIE['pagename_displayed']==0) //if page is not displayed then only execute
       //insert,update, statement
      //this portion will only exeucte once, it will not execute on F5, when user submit form then we manual set cookie to 0 and then only this portion will execute. Also learn cookies in javascript following javascript code is just a place holder.

<script language=javascript>
function submit()
  //reset cookie meansm, page is not displayed
/*setcookie is not inbuild javascript function you need to create function after learing handling cookies in javascript*/




<script language=javascript>
  setcookie('pagename_displayed',1);//we are setting page is displayed

Send a message via MSN to surendran Send a message via Yahoo to surendran

then use session
start a session before insert page,
check the session before insert command write, then make the session false.
like this.


//insert statment
