I am trying to insert data into the mysql table using php... but whenever i fill the form and insert data, it updates it but no exact data is present in my table, there is only 1's present in the records rather than actual data which i have inserted. Kindly help me out in this...

I have the following code:

<!DOCTYPE html>

$hostname = "localhost";
$username = "root";
$password = "";

$db_connect = mysql_connect($hostname, $username, $password);

if (!$db_connect){
    die("Database Connection Failed: " . mysql_error());

$db_select = mysql_select_db("hamdard_attendance", $db_connect);
if (!$db_select){
    die("Database Selection Failed: " . mysql_error());
