Is there a way how we can pass a PHP variable whose value has been retrieved from MySQL database to the next page?
Initially I tried this which didnt help me anyway.
// if user login information is CORRECT then redirecting them to the user home page //retrieving realted userid from db for passing it to next pages $query="select id from usertable where user='".$_POST['usrname']."' limit 1"; $result = mysql_query($query) or die(); $row = mysql_fetch_object($result); $passit = $row->id; //echo $passit; =>> this is displaying exactly what i wanted but how to pass this php variable value to the next page? I tried using form ACTION method but I guess it can't pass a PHP variable data to next page! header("Location: userhomepage.php");
I heard sessions can serve this problem but as I am not familiar with sessions I would like to find if there is some easier way for doing this.Can anyone help me with this!
Thankyou in Advance.
