Dear friends,

I would like to find out how do i go about posting data into a php scripted file on a webserver??

Alex Koh

Below is the code which i had implemented but does not seems to work. Also posted is the php script.

This is the php file.

PHP Insert

<form action="insert.php" method="post">

Key information
<input type="text" name="information" />

<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Click Me">

if(isset($_POST['submit'])==true) {
$information = $_POST["information"];
print("You are welcome");
$con = mysql_connect("localhost:3306","RICHARD","1234");
if (!$con)
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

mysql_select_db("dip", $con);
mysql_query("INSERT INTO post (word)
//$information = "JUST WORLD0";
//$query = "(INSERT INTO post(word) VALUES ('" + "EXAMPLE" + "')";
$query = "INSERT INTO post(word) VALUES ('$information')";
//$result = mysql_query("SELECT ssn FROM employee WHERE fullname = '$tmpVar'");
//$query = " INSERT INTO post (word)
//VALUES ('qqqq')";

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
