Hi, I need help to insert multiple checkbox data into MySQL using PHP.
I'm new here, any code I can refer?

I have a database name called subject_name and there is only 2 column in the table which is id and subject.

I would like to insert multiple checkbox data into the table.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

<p>
<input type="submit" name="button" id="button" value="Submit" />

Reading array values in php:

<?php
foreach($_POST['test'] as $index => $val){
echo "test[".$index."]=".$val;
}
?>

Here you should use your database code to update the values in the database. Thats it.

you can use normal select statement to retrieve all the columns.

Select name, address, phone, matricNo from Student

if you wanna to specify the query. Use WHERE

you could do exactly like the related post you show to me.
you post will be something like this.
for example:
chckbox[]="John"
chckbox[]="California"

you need to loop this value in order to insert to db accordingly.
