You have to creater an SQL query. Search for SQL tutorial, if you dunno what it is, or how to work with it. After creating an SQL Query, use PHP to connect to your database, execute command and then display result.

This the code i used in searchin' some records..but it didn't worked. The error was

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /41e1/myExample/search/< on this server.

here's my code..

<?php
/*set varibles from form */
$search = $_POST['search'];
Trim ($search);
/*check if search term was entered*/
If (!$search){
    echo 'Please enter a search term.';
}
/*add slashes to search term*/
If (!get_magic_quotes_gpc())
{
$search = addslashes($search);
}

/* connects to database */
$connection = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root') 
        or die ("Could not connect to server ... \n" . mysql_error ());
    mysql_select_db($db) 
        or die ("Could not connect to database ... \n" . mysql_error ());

Exit;
}
/*query the database*/
$query = "select * from students where name like '%$varchar%'";
$result = $dbconn->query($query);
/*number of rows found*/
$num_results = $result->num_rows;

echo '<p>Found: '.$num_results.'</p>';
/*loops through results*/
For ($I=0; $I <$num_results; $I++)
{
$num_found = $I + 1;
$row = $result->fetch_assoc();
Echo "$num_found. ".($row['name'])." <br />";
Echo "<table border='1'>
<tr>
<th>name</th>
<th>studno</th>
<th>course</th>
<th>department</th>
</tr>";

  echo "<tr>";
  echo "<td>" . $row['name'] . "</td>";
  echo "<td>" . $row['studno'] . "</td>";
  echo "<td>" . $row['course'] . "</td>";
  echo "<td>" . $row['department'] . "</td>";
Echo "</tr>";
}
Echo "</table>";

Open your FTP client and click on properties of that file, and set permissions to 0777, that is tick all the checkboxes and see if it works!

How can i find the FTP client? im using WAMP as my server.

Oh windows, um I dont have much idea about changing permissions in it, but in XP Sp3, Vista, 7 right click and select properties. Select security tab, and select Full Control for users below.

If you know the students Exact name, then this code:

$sql = mysql_query("select * from students where name like '%$string%'");

should be:

$sql = mysql_query("select * from students where name = '$string'");

By the way, you don't have any $string defined, you have $term, so in Fact your query should be:

$sql = mysql_query("select * from students where name = '$string'");

p.s. Im talking about the code in this post

What's the problem with my code below:

<?php
   
      mysql_connect ("localhost", "root") or die (mysql_error());
   
      mysql_select_db ("records");
   

   
      $term = $_POST['term'];

       

      $sql = mysql_query("select * from students where name like '%$term%' OR studno like '$term%'");

        echo "<table width='600' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='0' border='1' align='center'>";
         echo "<tr><th bgcolor='#99FFCC'>Student No:</th><th bgcolor='#99FFCC'>Name</th> <th bgcolor='#99FFCC'>Course</th> <th bgcolor='#99FFCC'>Year</th><th bgcolor='#99FFCC'>Department</th></tr>";

      while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($sql)){

       echo '<td><center>' . $row['studno'] . '</td>';
       echo '<td><center>' . $row['name'] . '</td>';
	echo '<td><center>' . $row['course'] . '</td>';
	echo '<td><center>' . $row['year'] . '</td>';
	echo '<td><center>' . $row['department'] . '</td>';
        echo "</tr>";

            }
        echo "</table>";

i used this code in searching a particular term or record in my database..it works well.this function search very well..but the problem is when i do not enter any term in the textbox, i just click the search button without entering any term from the textbox,they display all the records in my database..it must display,"Pls enter a name to search".. or maybe bacause i used this:

$sql = mysql_query("select * from students

and i didn't used if else statement for this..is there somebody would like to re-encode my codes using if-else statement.?..tnx in advance..
