Default Store info into a MySQL DB table

I was wondering if anybody could tell me
how to use PHP to
1) a script to store info into a MySQL DB Table (using html forms)
2) recall that info (and the script I'd use for that)

I'm new to both PHP and MySQL; for MySQL,
I know basic stuff like info to enter, when installing IPB forums, etc.

I've done a small, easy script using php alrdy;
(see http://korn.lp-hc.us/script_test )

Anywhose, if anybody could help me out, it'd
be a great help :) Thnkx in advance for any/all help

This is actually extremely easy to do, and is one of the main reasons people use server-side scripting languages like PHP in the first place.

Here's the minimum you'll need to do to:


if (isset($_POST['some_input_field']))

    $query = "INSERT INTO table (some_column)
                     VALUES ('{$_POST['some_input_field]}')";




$query = "SELECT * FROM table";

$result = mysql_query($query);

if ($result)
    while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
        echo "Your row was: <pre>";
        echo "</pre>\n";


As always, RTM: http://www.php.net/mysql

There are ___LOTS___ of tutorials and articles out there, too, so no one should have to rewrite any of them. Just search on google:


Take care,
