Help with PHP code to edit rows in MySQL

10 posts in this topic

I've got website running happily using XAMPP 1.4.15

However, I desperately want to upgrade to the latest XAMP 1.6.1

The problem I'm having after the upgrade is with a php page that lets me edit users. I can add users ok but if I try to edit them, all the cells in that row end up empty. There's no error message which makes it difficult to diagnose.

At first, I thought the reason was due to the new XAMPP having MySQL 5.0.37. I upgraded XAMPP 1.4.15 to MySQL 5.0.37 and it still worked perfectly. There's something in XAMP 1.6.1 which isn't compatible with my php code. I even tried XAMP 1.6.1 with PHP 4.4.6 but I still had the same problem.

Please help

I've attached the PHP code + MySQL database in case anyone would be so kind as to take a look at it.

No it says "Updated Information Ok". However, when I go back to the main page, the entry I edited has empty fields.

Can u check please the entries on the DB itself?

I understand that the PHP isn't showing the enrtries, I want to know what the DB says about it...

Try this in the file adminpage_staff_edit.php

	$staff_first_name = addslashes(trim($_POST['staff_first_name']));
$staff_last_name = addslashes(trim($_POST['staff_last_name']));
$dept_id = addslashes(trim($_POST['dept_id']));
$staff_title = addslashes(trim($_POST['staff_title']));
$staff_email = addslashes(trim($_POST['staff_email']));
$staff_telephone = addslashes(trim($_POST['staff_telephone']));

if ( !empty($_POST['staff_image']) )

Let me know what happens.

so they were deleted (assuming it was an EDIT & they existed before this process)

try mad_raven's suggestion, then will see...

Sorry mad_raven you posted while I was replying to MtK so I've only just read your reply.

I tried your code and it works :)

Thank you so much.

Quick question, why did it work before in my old version of XAMPP? Is it due to modifications with the PHP scripting language?

A wild guess would be: $_POST,

but wait for mad_raven's answer...

There are two possible explainations.

1: register_globals has been turned off in your php.ini file.

2: The new version of XAMP turns it off when it runs.

The register_globals feature automatically registers form field as variables. If the feature is turned off then you need to access the submitted form fields using the $_GET and $_POST super globals.

Register_globals is turned off by default in the latest versions of php as it is a security risk having it turned on.
