To insert data into Mysql DB using PHP yop should have to use Mysql insert statement.
An Example of this
HTML page script .
<form action ="next.php" method="post" >
<input type ="text" name="name" />
</form>

page next.php
$link = mysql_connect("Server name","username","passwd");
mysql_select_db("db name"):
$result = mysql_query("insert into tablenmae values($_POST[name])");
if($result)
echo "Record inserted.";

mysqli even?

So to insert value to mysql there are following steps

1. make connectio to mysql using
$con=mysql_connect("[server ip/address]","[user]","[password]")
eg:-

$con=mysql_connect("localhost","root","");

2. select the database
$db=mysql_select_db("database_name",$con);
eg:-

$db=mysql_select_db("employee",$con);

3. insert the data into database using mysql query
$res=mysql_query("Insert into abc values('field1'...);
eg:

$query=mysql_query("Insert into abc values('iim','manager')");

Hopefully it's clear...

Why don't you just search Google and get a script, fiddle with it and come back when you hit a problem.

.if you cant answer nicely ... just dont reply

That's rich, if you can't be bothered to do some work for yourself, don't post. Read the guidelines. You should show some effort yourself.

wasting time? ....what is daniweb made for? ...actually i just pass by and drop some thread to see if somebody is replying and yeah they reply ..

<?php
if(isset($_POST['submit']))
$link = mysql_connect("localhost","root","") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("db_name") or die(mysql_error());

Dear new members, could you please stop necroposting to this thread. It died a natural death, but has now been resurrected. There are many similar threads in DW that were satisfactory answered.

The OP did not show any effort himself and did not think to read our guidelines. Therefore, he didn't really deserve a 'full solution'. In addition, providing solutions to dead threads like this only serves to clutter up our forum thread list with this nonsense. If you wish to show off your ability, then consider writing a cope snippet or a tutorial.
